MA - Master of Arts
This MA Social Work degree equips you with the skills, knowledge and reflective capacity you need to practise as an effective social worker. You will develop a sound knowledge base that encompasses theory, the ethical and legal bases for practice, social policy and an understanding of how social work fits into organisational contexts.
The course promotes relationship-based practice and is unique because of the link with the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust. The opportunity to study both at the University of East London and the Tavistock allows you to experience university culture and a working clinic. As part of the course you will participate in a week-long Group Relations Conference as well as weekly work discussion groups. Because the course attracts students from different cultural backgrounds and a range of disciplines - including psychology, law, sociology, criminology, business studies and even science - the knowledge our students bring enriches the course experience as much as the teaching.
You will graduate with a master’s degree which allows you to register as a social worker with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). The course is validated by the HCPC and endorsed by the College for Social Work.
