The Professional Masters in Social Work was developed for graduates who have completed a degree with a substantial social policy focus and who are interested in pursuing a career in social work. It is a two-year, full-time graduate course providing accredited professional training in social work. The course provides generic social work training that includes two 14-week practice placements in a range of social-work settings.

The course provides an integrated academic and social work practice curriculum that meets the standards set by CORU (the Irish Social Work Regulation Board), which is widely recognised internationally.
