Introduction of Studies Social Welfare

Social Welfare

Pursuing the happiness of individuals as well as humanity as a whole.

Social welfare concerns the research of social environments and systems from various angles for finding ways for people to live happy, dignified lives. Social welfare does not only concern those who require social welfare services, such as those with disabilities or senior citizens. Studies also cover the whole of social welfare services that address the many issues of physical and mental support, such as the management of welfare facilities and medical institutions, and legal and social frameworks. The aim of social welfare studies is to bring happiness to all of mankind. Issues of starvation and world hunger are also covered in this field. Social welfare is a form of support for those in need of services, and within those services human dignity and diversity must be respected. This is why social welfare is also referred to as “human services”.
