The main goal of social workers' education in higher educational institutions of Ukraine, which comprises training of a specialist in social work with broad access to professional activities in social institutions and to practical social work with different categories of population has been described by the author. The curricula of "bachelors" and "masters" of social work in the context of the focus on preparing for the work of specialists in the social sphere with migrants has been analyzed in the article. It has been established that the specific theoretical component of professional training of social workers to work with migrants in the universities of Ukraine is almost absent.
