Objectives:
The Health Social Work master degree program, which has stood the time abroad, establishes a new qualification in our country. All the social changes which characterize the developed countries lead to problems that cannot be handled by one and well circumscribed profession. Several issues require professionals who can apply their comprehensive knowledge in practice, are able to reveal and analyse the relation between health and social problems of the individuals and the society, work out development plans, work out and implement independent helping processes, work out and apply social diagnosis and therapy, and participate in team-work. To achieve these goals the Health Social Work master degree program offers a special training which provides unique interdisciplinary and integrated knowledge for students, for whom the gates to institutions of disabled people, elderly people, rehabilitation and other types of the whole health care system will open. Due to European priorities such institutions, one after the other, are being built or modernized and put in a claim for more professionals. So they offer attractive, tailor made possibilities.
