Über die Fakultät

The Faculty of Social Work was one of the first faculties to be established before today's Landshut University of Applied Sciences was founded in 1978. We started lecturing in the winter semester of 1973/74.
In addition to an intensive practical and research-based education, students particularly appreciate the manageable size of the faculty and the resulting personal atmosphere.

Excursions and study trips

Excursions and study trips are invaluable in the field of social work. We offer students the opportunity to learn about theory in practice and gain insight into the real-world challenges and solutions that occur in this field. Field trips and study tours, both at home and abroad, allow students to observe and compare different approaches and methods of social work. These visits allow students to apply and expand their skills and knowledge in real-life situations. In addition, the comparison of social work at home and abroad enables a deeper understanding of the diversity and complexity of this field of work and promotes the development of best practices and innovative solutions to the challenges in social work.

Laboratories and workshops

Our students can try out many things in the labs. The research and media lab is ideal for empirical social studies and applied scientific projects, for example. In the audio and video workshop with recording studio, bands and student projects have an equipped rehearsal room and the opportunity to record their own music professionally. In the music and movement workshop, there is not only enough space to make music together, but also to engage in dance and theatre.

The mobile games laboratory expands the faculty's possibilities and turns every seminar room into a media education workshop.

Feedback box

Students have the opportunity to send complaints, criticism, problems, but also praise directly to the Women's Representative and the Diversity Representative via a contact form. The feedback box supplements the "Suggestions for improvement for the Social Work and Diversity degree programme" mailbox.

The digital feedback box is a complaints office for students of the Faculty of Social Work.
