Master of Social Work

Level: Postgraduate coursework

A strong focus on the critical reflection of practice, research skills and theory development is the hallmark of our postgraduate program in social work. Academic staff members have extensive experience in teaching while maintaining a broad range of community involvements. They are members of local, state and national advisory boards, serve on community welfare organisations' boards, and provide advice to a range of welfare agencies. You may choose to undertake a course at graduate diploma or master's degree level. Sydney's unique combination of social work and social policy units of study will give intellectual rigour to your study of equity, social-justice and social-empowerment issues, considering a range of areas of study including specific population groups such as women, migrants and Aboriginal Australians, theories of social work practice, comparative studies of welfare policy and practice in a range of sociocultural settings (including Europe and Asia), the history and theory of the welfare state.
