Do you want to work with people? Are you passionate about human rights and social justice? Social workers promote the well-being of individuals, families and communities. They apply their interdisciplinary knowledge about Australian society, social problems and human needs to foster social change and transform lives. RMIT University has been teaching social work for over 40 years, and courses continue to reflect contemporary ideas about social work and its place in a changing world. Bachelor of Social Work (Honours) graduates are resilient, outspoken members of society who advocate a fairer world for all.

You will study courses including social work, social science and research. Field education forms a large component of the social work degree. You'll undertake 140 days of work placements within human service and community service organisations.
