Social workers foster human rights and social cohesion, as well as support people, groups, and communities to help them improve their daily lives, and social well-being. These professionals work alongside their target groups and other experts. Carrying out social work involves consistently keeping personal relationships in different settings and levels. Because of this, students willing to become social workers must be sensitive towards social problems, motivated, focused on people, and at the same time, stand out as service oriented individuals. They should be flexible when it comes to complexity and diversity. Candidates for the Bachelor's Degree in Social Work should be analytical, have critical sense, and also be able to see the overall picture. Skills in communication and interpersonal relations are highly important, as well as sense of commitment, responsibility, autonomy and initiative. Applicants should lean towards research and be curious, in order to develop new ideas and plans.
