Course Summary

This programme is ideal whether you have already done some study related to social care, or are new to the field.

Our course will teach you about the theoretical foundations of social work, which are rooted in psychology and sociology. You will explore social policy and the laws surrounding working with children and families, people with mental health issues, and vulnerable adults. And you’ll focus on what it means to work with individuals, families, groups, fellow social workers and other professionals.

We are part of a government-funded Social Work Teaching Partnership with Suffolk and Norfolk County Councils and the University of Suffolk, ensuring that you’ll benefit from close links between teaching, research and practice, now and in your future career. Our graduates are highly regarded by local employers and many of our students choose to begin their careers with our partners, through the links that start while they are on their student placements.

Due to the nature of the course, you will need to complete an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service screening. You will also need to provide two references: one regarding your academic achievements, and the second telling us about your experience in work or helping people. You must also inform us about any major health concerns that could affect your studies.

The MA Social Work at UEA is accredited by the Social Work England standards.
