About this course

Now more than ever compassionate and engaged social workers are needed to help improve the life-chances and wellbeing of people and to combat societal inequality.

Contemporary social workers need contemporary skills to respond meaningfully to social problems. Our Bachelor of Social Work with Honours (Professional and Research Specialisations) has been redesigned after direct industry feedback to reflect current and emerging practice trends in the profession.

The newly updated honours-level course with specialisation options has been designed to exceed professional accreditation standards, and will give you key skills in ethical, innovative and collaborative social work practice.

The new curriculum will equip you with advanced knowledge of social work research principles and methods. It also includes 1,000 hours of supervised professional placement, and students are encouraged to take part in additional project and research work with communities and industry.

You will graduate as a creative and ethical communicator who respectfully uses knowledge to meet the needs of diverse social work client groups, communities and organisations. You will be able to respond to social justice and human rights challenges in ways that are culturally sensitive, principled, and effective.

Cradle Coast students should note they are required to attend a series of workshops in Launceston for two units: HGW312 and HGW424. The dates of these workshops will be available shortly.

Students who commenced the Bachelor of Social Work (13L) or the Bachelor of Social Work with Honours (R4B) in 2018 or earlier should refer to the entry for their relevant course code and year.
