Description

The purpose of the Bachelor of Social Work is to equip social work graduates with a sound general foundation for beginning social work practice. Social Work at Monash seeks to comply with, and where possible exceed, the minimum requirements established by the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) for social work educational courses leading to a first qualification in social work.

The Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Social Work aims to combine a professional qualification in social work with the achievement of an arts degree. The latter develops students' knowledge and capacity for critical analysis in a wide range of arts disciplines.
