Do you want a job that not only changes the lives of others, but your own as well? A Bachelor of Social Work from Edith Cowan University will get you ready for a fulfilling career that’s entirely focused on making a positive impact on people’s lives.
Throughout this comprehensive course, you’ll develop your professional competencies and get prepared to work within a complex, uncertain and contested social work practice environment. You’ll cover everything from social work theory, practice and research to politics, policy, law and ethics, learning how to apply your knowledge to regional, rural and remote settings. You’ll also undertake two 14-week social work field placements to gain vital hands-on experience.
Offered both online and on-campus at ECU South West (Bunbury), this degree is specifically designed to prepare students to meet the national Practice Standards for Social Workers. Please note that as part of the Australian Association of Social Workers accreditation requirements, if you choose to do online study, you are required to attend on-campus activities for a minimum of five days per semester.
After four years of full-time study (or eight years part-time), you’ll graduate ready to make a difference in the world as a professional social worker.
