Overview

The Master of Social Work (Qualifying) curriculum meets AASW requirements and builds on Monash Social Work areas of strength, especially in gender studies, sustainability, child wellbeing and health. The degree includes considerable emphasis on community engagement and leadership, and provides opportunities to work with organisations to complete projects and research. The Master of Social Work (Qualifying) is a coursework degree with theoretical, skills development and supervised professional practice units. The course provides opportunities for group-based research and integration of theory and practice. Theoretical content builds on knowledge acquired by graduates in previous higher education, while social work skills components and professional practice units introduce students to contemporary social work practice.

Career opportunities

Our graduates have an excellent record in gaining employment. Social work has been identified as one of the fastest growing professions and it provides a wide range of employment opportunities. For example, Monash graduates find work as family counsellors, child protection workers and school counsellors. They work in hospitals and community health centres, mental health services and palliative care programs. They work in youth services, neighbourhood houses and in services for migrants and refugees. They work with youth and adult offenders, and with people who have drug and alcohol problems. They also work in community development, in policy development and in management in human service organisations.

Professional recognition (Australian)

The areas covered in the curriculum meet Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) accreditation requirements, including 1000 hours of supervised professional practice. The fieldwork program is well-developed and makes use of extensive partnership arrangements.
