International Social Work at HAN trains you to work together with local communities in an international setting. Your aim is to empower individuals and communities to become more resilient and self-reliant. You do that by working systematically and with proven methods, by setting up projects, liaising with local and international contacts and by connecting people. With this degree you specialize in Community Development and Inclusive Society.

In today's climate we face all kinds of global issues, such as natural disasters, migration, climate change, poverty to name a few. Issues that need more than a quick fix. Social workers are crucial in working together with and for communities to tackle these issues from the ground up. By building bridges with involved parties in a sustainable way, social workers make a difference!

You learn project management, how to do social research, tools and the latest developments in the field of social work. Next to theory you delve into practice by doing internships throughout all 4 years of your study. After all fieldwork is at the heart of social work.
