About the Department

The city of Gothenburgh has a long tradition of educating social workers. Already in 1944 the local government established the Institute of Social Work. The institute can be seen as one of the tools used in creating the modern welfare system. In 1977 the institute was incorporated into the University of Gothenburgh as a regular department. With about 1400 students and 130 staff members the Department of Social Work is today one of the larger departments at the University. The department provides programmes and courses at bachelors, masters (Undergraduate Studies) and doctoral levels (Postgraduate Studies).
