The course will provide skills and knowledge which allow the social worker to carry out his activity within the organized system of social resources, acting according to the principles, skills and methods specific to the profession. Graduates must be able to manage, organise, plan and coordinate social work. For this reason, the Degree Course moves on two educational levels: 1. the first includes training activities related to the study of basic disciplines in the sociological, anthropological, legal-economic, psychological and historical fields and to the acquisition of methodologies and techniques typical of social research; 2. the second concerns training activities aimed at acquiring organizational and programming skills and implementing the interventions of the social service, as well as skills in the field of communication and information management. The training path is completed with the professional internship which allows a strong integration between theory and practice.

The final exam consists in the presentation by the student of a written paper, agreed with a professor (supervisor) related to the disciplinary scientific sector present in the student's curricular path. The final exam aims to evaluate the student's ability to develop a topic among those covered during the studies, and / or to reflect on the internship experience, in the direction of ascertaining the possession of theoretical-practical skills consistent with the specific objectives of the study course.
