The Social and Educational Sciences Department was the first department of the university and started already in the founding year 1991 with the diploma program Social Work/Social Pedagogy. Since then, we have placed great emphasis on developing innovative study models in response to changes in professional practice due to societal changes. The range of studies has been constantly expanded and developed with innovative teaching methods to meet the changes in higher education and professional practice.
