Social Sciences and Social Welfare
The Bachelor of Social Science focuses on understanding society and its institutions, and the way they impact on people and their life opportunities. It is underpinned by the values of social justice, human rights and environmental sustainability. Graduates gain work in settings such as the public service, community agencies, advocacy and lobbying organisations, and international aid organisations.
The Bachelor of Social Welfare provides the theoretical and practical foundation for work in the human services industry as a welfare or community worker in a wide range of jobs. The course places emphasis on social justice and human rights as the basis for social welfare practice, and is accredited by the Australian Community Workers Association.
The Master of Social Work (Professional Qualifying) provides further studies for those with a prior qualification in the social sciences, psychology, or related fields. It qualifies eligible graduates to work as a Social Worker in Australia. Graduates may also be eligible to apply to work as a social worker overseas.
