The Master of Social Work (Qualifying) course is a mid-year entry, fast-track option to becoming a social worker for those who already hold a bachelor degree in a related area.
This course offers Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) to domestic applicants, which means part of your course fees are subsidised by the Australian Government.
Social work draws on knowledge from a range of disciplines including sociology psychology, politics, philosophy, health and economics. Social workers are committed to social justice, human rights and social change. They work with and alongside individuals, groups and communities to improve people's quality of lives, promote positive relationships, and advocate for human rights.
The course focuses on how people understand and interact with each other, their communities and society.
This course has mixed modes of delivery, including online, on-campus intensive blocks and fieldwork. Please check individual unit information for tuition method.
You will complete 14 weeks or 2 semester's worth (1000 hours) of supervised fieldwork placements in the course for professional identity development.
