About this course

Through a number of diverse and rewarding roles, human services practitioners provide support to individuals, families and communities who are experiencing social or economic adversity. They may work directly with clients providing support or advocating on their behalf, manage the delivery of services and support through agencies such as Centrelink, or work for government in the development and implementation of new policies and programs. They are committed to improving social justice and human rights, promoting equitable and accessible services, and actioning social change.

Double degrees

Combine two bachelor degrees into a single course of study. A double degree allows you to specialise in two fields and pursue different interest areas, gaining a broader range of skills and knowledge, and giving you a competitive advantage and greater career flexibility.

Consider the following double degrees with a Bachelor of Human Services:

  • Business: gain knowledge and skills to add business acumen to roles in staff recruitment and management or promotion of community service programs.
  • Creative Industries: combine creative industries and human services for careers in youth or disability arts, rehabilitation in corrective services, or community and cultural development.
  • Justice: where your human services and justice qualifications position you for a career in policy development, child and family services, Indigenous community work, customs services, court administrative services, non-policy enforcement agencies, or criminology research.
  • Public Health: merge your human services and public health skills in order to deliver support programs in government, NGOs, community and advocacy groups, and not-for-profit organisations.
