Social Services

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 degree programme in Social Services provides students with socio-pedagogical competence and innovative expertise in the social sector which work to meet the changing requirements of the Helsinki Metropolitan area. Bachelors of Social Services act confidently to promote social participation, equality and wellbeing in society. They work in cooperation with individuals and communities to prevent and reduce social deprivation and exclusion. They are capable of demonstrating their competence in their profession and committed to their ongoing development.
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. Bachelors of Social Services are capable of analysing social phenomena and understand their significance to people’s lives and wellbeing. Combining pedagogical (education and learning) and social (societal) perspectives at work is emphasised in social pedagogy. The work is carried out in the daily lives of people of different ages in their own living environment. Bachelors of Social Services show competence in dialogue with different people, which requires appreciation of the diversity of their daily living. By means of socio-pedagogical competence, Bachelors of Social Services can influence a client’s functional ability and sense of empowerment. 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.
