Complete the Bachelor of Social Work and become a professionally qualified social worker, eligible for membership with the Australian Association of Social Workers. You will be supported by an experienced teaching team and be guided by practising social workers as they complete extensive field placements.
Over the course of four years, you will develop an understanding of the practice methods, skills, knowledge and values of the social work profession. With an emphasis on problem-based learning, you will gain valuable experience in critical and reflective thinking and practice. You will have the opportunity to complete two field education placements where you will begin to apply your developing knowledge and skills and see in-practice examples of theory. Whether you seek a career in policy, research, direct practice with families groups or communities, this degree will ensure you are equipped with the skills, knowledge and values to assist the most vulnerable and marginalised members of our communities to achieve the best outcomes.
