The Social Work program at Monash University   provides you with the context, professionalism, knowledge and skills you’ll need as a social worker. Your studies start with the foundations of social work - from the history of social work in Australia, to social policy, welfare systems, and social work research. 

Career opportunities 

With a Monash degree in social work, you will be ready to practice in a range of settings, and work with people of all ages and backgrounds. Social work is a career with strong projected employment growth, and our qualification enables you to practice as a social worker both locally in Australia or around the world.

Social workers empower people and drive important change - whether that’s working one-on-one, as part of a team of professionals, or by shaping policy.
