About the programme

The BA in Social Education offers pedagogical specialisations within the three different areas of day care education, school and leisure education and social- and special pedagogy.

Social educators therefore work in a variety of places, i.e. in day-care centres, pre-school classes, recreation centres/school-based leisure time facilities, after school clubs, 24-hour service institutions, and institutions for children, young people and adults with reduced psychological or physical capacities.

At Social Education the teaching incorporates different methods, including group work, innovative project work, discussions and lectures. We continuously work with combining theory and practice.
