DescriptionThe module Increasing Welfare through User Involvement is a 10 week programme during which the student will gain an international perspective on approaches and methods for user involvement of marginalised groups in the field of welfare services.
The aim is to work with the conditions for democratic and transparent public service which can be publicly or privately organised and must be able to handle the complexities of late modern society.
The programme combines values, theories and practices aimed at enabling people in developing their full potential and enriching their lives through user / citizen involvement. The programme is designed for students who want to study and work with marginalised groups of all kinds with the priority being vulnerable children, youngsters or different minority groups.
The programme will consist of teamwork where the students work in groups on written assignments which will culminate in individual or group examinations.
About the DegreeThe short-term programme is taught in English and is part of the full degree; the professional Bachelor Programme in Social Work and Public Administration. The full degree is only offered in Danish.
