The desire to help the needy and vulnerable in our society is a calling more than a job.
Our Bachelor of Social Welfare is focused on achieving positive social change and community wellbeing. It is also the pathway to a deeply satisfying career in the human services sector.
We'll help harness your empathy and enhance your communication skills with a view to delivering great outcomes across social welfare practice. You can choose to specialise through a major focusing on children and young people, the health and disability sector, mental health or Indigenous knowledge.
You will gain on-the-job experience through extensive placements, working with individuals and organisations that share your commitment and are working to improve people's lives.
Graduates will emerge with transferrable skills for a variety of career options in human services – from working directly with people in their homes or facilities, to creating policy. You can also continue your studies in a linked Masters program that offers a pathway to professional accreditation as a social worker.
