Koulutuksen kuvaus

STUDIES AT DEGREE PROGRAMME IN SOCIAL SERVICES
The Degree Programme in Social Services follows the common principles of Metropolia’s Learner’s Path. Workplace-oriented teaching and learning take place in multicultural environments in the Metropolitan area. Programme teaching takes advantage of many different ways of learning such as exploratory and project-based learning. Studies also include the planning and implementation of projects that develop social services together with a team of experts. In the course of their studies, each student will participate in multidisciplinary courses and have the opportunity to choose up to 30 credits of elective courses from the social services degree programme and from other suitable degree programmes. The Learner's Path encourages students to join international activities such as international internships, exchange pro-grammes and projects. Because the Degree Programme in Social Services is conducted in both Finnish and English, all students will have the opportunity to complete part of their studies in English. Students may acquire the Competence in Early Childhood Education in Social Services by studying the required amount (60 credits) of early childhood education courses.
THE BASIC MISSION OF THE DEGREE PROGRAMME IN SOCIAL SERVICES (BACHELOR OF SOCIAL SERVICES)

THE EXPERTISE REQUIRED IN THE DEGREE PROGRAMME FOR BACHELORS OF SOCIAL SERVICES
The foundation of professionalism for Bachelors of Social Services is built on the socio-pedagogical approach.

The work is carried out in the daily lives of people of different ages in their own living environment.

This expertise manifests itself, for example, in socio-cultural competence as well as client-oriented and participatory actions. Bachelors of Social Services are also capable of taking on tasks requiring development and leadership skills, promoting the social perspective within social services as well as multiprofessionalism and networking within the overlapping areas among welfare providers.
