It is possible to take the courses in order to progress to third-cycle education, or they can be used as the basis for developing specialist expertise for more advanced professional responsibilities.
LiU teaches the second-cycle courses as part-time study (50%) in order to create flexibility for students.
It is not necessary to sign up for a complete master’s programme, and the courses can be taken individually. If you want to study full-time in order to complete a master’s degree as rapidly as possible, a number of course combinations are available in a flexible package.
The courses that start in the autumn term are taken together with students taking term 7 of the social work programme.
The meeting on the same course between professionals active in social work and those taking the study programme can create dynamism and a positive learning environment.
