Digitalisation in Social Work

Digitalisation also has a major influence on activities in social work. The Master's Digitalisation in Social Work study course will prepare specialist workers and executive managers for challenging tasks in the areas of digitalisation and social services.

In addition to the technical interest which should be a basic prerequisite for the course, a sensitive and sector-appropriate approach to digital innovations is also required.

The dual Master's study course would like to sharpen the view of the (digitalised) living environment of the associated customers or clients, support social institutions in the digital transformation process and increase the effectiveness, efficiency and quality of the social services which are provided.
