Social Work Courses

Social workers play a vital role in every community. They are trained professionals who assist and improve the circumstances of community groups, families and individuals who are facing problems or challenges in life. Most often, social work is focused on groups with long-term or acute disadvantages, such as the poor, aged and chronically ill, as well as Indigenous communities and struggling families. As well as improving wellbeing on a personal level, social work professionals work to address broader community issues like social injustice, inequality and discrimination.

Social work courses prepare students for meaningful careers in a number of areas, such as family, youth and child welfare services, aged care, income support, drug and alcohol rehabilitation, disability services, and mental health services.
