If you're interested in working with people and addressing social and community issues and problems, social work is an exciting and rewarding career. As a social worker, you'll have a commitment to the wellbeing of society and be highly skilled to intervene with and support individuals, families, groups and communities.
You'll study the role of evidence and research in supporting social work practice and you'll complete a range of courses to develop a deeper understanding in influencing and implementing social policy through community consultation.
This program will allow you to qualify as a social worker. In addition to completing core courses, you'll have the opportunity to complete advanced practice electives in counselling, community development, or child and family welfare.
You'll benefit from a program created in consultation with professionals in the field. You'll learn the latest theories and practices, and undertake 600 hours of supervised practical placements in organisations such as not-for-profit, community service and private practice.
The 18-month Master of Social Work Studies is designed for people with a Bachelor of Human Services (or equivalent) and a professional practice portfolio that demonstrates Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) practice standards and code of ethics.
