Children at Risk

August 14, 2017 – January 12, 2018

For students of social pedagogy or social work this international 30 ECTS BA-level course offers insight into important theory, methods and ethics related to professional social-pedagogical work with children, youth and families at risk.

“Children at Risk” (CaR) is offered by University College Absalon at Campus Roskilde for the 12th time. The working language is English.


  • Introduction to Denmark and Danish Pedagogy
  • Cultural Understanding, Professional Communication and Interdisciplinary Collaboration  
  • Social-Pedagogical Work with Children and Youth in Vulnerable Positions
  • International Comparative Field Studies


For Children at Risk 2017 we accept 25 international students from teaching, social pedagogy, social work or related bachelor educations. We give high priority to the diversity of the group.

It is preferable - but not mandatory - that the students have had some practical experience with professional pedagogical work before attending the course.

The Children at Risk course rests on Danish pedagogical traditions demanding independence, responsibility, high engagement and self-discipline from the students. It includes active dialogue in class, in groups outside of class and on the internet as well as a general participatory approach to learning.
