Want to be a social worker?

If you want to be a social worker, then this is the programme for you.

The Master of Applied Social Work (MAppSW) will prepare you for practice and registration as a social worker in New Zealand and most other countries.

The course conforms to national and international guidelines by including two different supervised field experiences. This 240-credit master's programme is designed for students who have a bachelor's degree in a field other than social work but wish to change careers.

Add to social work knowledge

With a Massey MAppSW, you will be able to make cutting-edge contributions to your discipline. You’ll benefit from our research-informed, research-leading, forward-thinking and academically credible programmes. They’ll help you contribute to knowledge-building in Aotearoa New Zealand and internationally.

Requirements

MAppSW students should read and note the “fit and proper” requirements on the Social Workers Registration Board website. All MAppSW students will be vetted by the New Zealand Police prior to their field education placements. A police record may not be a barrier to field placement, but full disclosure of any convictions in New Zealand and/or overseas is essential. All students must have a current full driving licence valid in New Zealand by the start of their field placements.

What kind of jobs can you get in social work?

A social work degree means you can work in many different areas. You could be a field operator working in the community or you could be a professional advisor in a hospital or a district health board. You might choose to be a policy expert working with government. Or you could travel overseas to the jungles of Papua New Guinea to work within a village setting. The options are endless. And endlessly meaningful. Social workers make a difference in many areas around the world including:

  • Hospitals and primary health care
  • Mental health and addictions
  • Voluntary and community organisations and government organisations
  • Child protection
  • Youth justice
  • Housing
  • Offenders
  • Residential care
  • Management and supervision
  • Tertiary education
  • Community work and community development
  • Refugees and migrants
  • Schools.
