Master of Social Work (Qualifying)

Social Work at Western

There is a strong emphasis on our students moving beyond the University and working on projects with people in the community and workplace.

The Master of Social Work (Qualifying) is aimed at graduates of Social Sciences and other Human Services programs who wish to achieve a professional qualification in social work.

It combines the academic rigour, including research training required for a Masters level qualification, with the practical education required to meet Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW) standards.

As a student of Western Sydney University you will undertake traditional academic units as well as completing assessed placements. The combination of blended and work-based learning is a distinguishing feature of this degree.
