Course Description

This social work and psychology double degree combines our two highly respected Social Work and Social Science programs to give you a unique, broad grounding across both areas.

Social workers and psychologists often work side-by-side in organisations where a balancing act of expertise in both areas is required.

This program will increase your knowledge and understanding of human development, needs and problems, and how such factors interact within individual, group, organisational, community and policy contexts.

You will be prepared for employment in general social work practice and settings requiring an understanding of psychology. You will be equipped to apply interdisciplinary knowledge of Australian society, social issues and social problems.

This social work and psychology double degree combines the Bachelor of Social Work (Honours) and the Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology).
