BA Social Work


Explanation:
I suspect that in the UK, for example, we would put the actual degree title, which might be something like BA (for Bachelor of Arts) Social Work. I'm sorry but I can't see these other titles appearing below a social worker's signature on a letter.

equivalent to Master of Social Work


Explanation:
According to this Austrian site Austrian tertiary awards should not be translated, and instead only the equivalent English award should be shown.


"The academic degrees, however, are not translated. Please note the following equivalences:
Bakkalaureatsgrade - Bachelor; Magistergrade - Master; Diplomgrade - Master; Doktorgrade - Doctor; „Master"-Grade - Advanced Master; akademische Grade in Fachhochschul-Studiengängen - Master (FH)."
