Hochschule Bremen, City University of Applied Sciences, School of Social Work

The School of Social Work in Bremen exists since 1918. Currently, we offer two B.A. programs for social work (regular and dual) for about 450 students, and, beginning with spring term 2019, M.A. program “Practice Research and Innovation in Social Work”. We follow the approach of an applied science in teaching, research, project development and further education for social workers. In all these activities, we integrate both the traditions of social work and social pedagogy. To establish an international perspective on social work, we include several international elements in our school, some of which are the annual SocNet 98 International University Weeks, special bilateral exchange programs with partner universities, international social work modules, and we support our students to choose their internships and special study stays abroad. Our School of Social Work is a member of SocNet98 – European Network of Universities/Schools of Social Work , ERIS – European Research Institute for Social Work, and the EASSW.
