About the program

The Social Work (Qualifying) program from Curtin University is a mid-year entry, fast-track option to becoming a social worker for those who already hold a bachelor degree in a related area.

Social work draws on knowledge from a range of disciplines including sociology psychology, politics, philosophy, health and economics. Social workers are committed to social justice, human rights and social change. 

They work with and alongside individuals, groups and communities to improve people’s quality of lives, promote positive relationships, and advocate for human rights.

Programme Structure

  • Develop, integrate and critically apply social work values, knowledge and principles; provide assessment and intervention that is informed by consumers and the practice context.
  • Work inclusively and creatively across diverse practice contexts; provide accountable and responsive leadership; demonstrate professional behaviour consistent with social work values, principles, ethics and practice standards.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of relevant national and international social policies and practice standards in order to synthesise knowledge of the interrelationship between local and global issues, and apply an intersectional analysis to social policy domains.
