The education and training of social workers has been transformed in recent years
Academics at Southampton have played their part in this process, using their experience and research findings to improve and enhance procedures and systems.
Our research expertise is also in demand by governments and organisations worldwide requiring reliable advice from leading academics in the field.
Supporting children and vulnerable adults in the community is a demanding, stimulating and highly rewarding career. A masters degree at Southampton, incorporating classroom sessions and practical placement experience, could be your first step to becoming a social worker.
Our libraries are second to none. Find out more about our books and digital resources.
Much of our work is carried out in Social Sciences' network of respected research centres.
