Studying Social Work and Community Welfare
Whether you want to create an impact on one individual’s life or the lives of many, a rewarding and fulfilling career awaits in the social and community sphere.
Our degrees in social sciences and social work offer a rigorous grounding in the field and a pathway to professional registration. Careers span high job growth areas such as social work, human services, social policy and analysis, counselling, or research.
With an emphasis on social justice and human rights, our Bachelor of Community Welfare graduates are equipped with 400 hours of supervised on-the-job training and strong practical foundations for work in the human services sector.
“A highlight from my course so far is being able to have the flexibility in my units to delve deeper into what I want to study and learn more about what I’d like to do, what I’m really looking forward to is being able to exercise my knowledge in a practical way.”
Social Work Student
At Southern Cross University we're always looking for a better way to do things, that's why we created 'The Southern Cross Model'. By dividing the academic year into six-week terms, with a maximum of two subjects per term, students are better able to focus, dive deeply into the subject matter and really learn. The content is highly interactive, with real-world applications; and it leaves more time for the other things you love.
Events and On-Demand Videos
Register to join us for live events. Talk to lecturers, ask all of your pressing questions, and hear from people who have worked in the industry. You can also watch our on-demand videos which will give you a mini ‘tour’ of the subject.
Southern Cross University acknowledges and pays respect to the ancestors, Elders and descendants of the Lands upon which we work, meet and study.
We are mindful that within and without the buildings, the Land always was and always will be Aboriginal Land.
