A career in social work, counselling and human services empowers you to work with real people and to have a direct impact on real lives. And that’s why we get you out into the community early: so you can build your practical skills and real-world understanding. Our courses take you beyond the classroom with up to 1,000 hours of supervised field education, training and community engagement.
When you graduate with a social work degree from ACU, you’re graduating with a degree accredited by the Australian Association of Social Workers. This means that future employers know you have received quality teaching, in a supportive environment that meets the Australian Social Work Education and Accreditation Standards.
Start with empathy
You’ll learn how to practise social work with courage, compassion, creativity and integrity when you study at a university that advocates for the dignity of all. And, when you graduate, you’ll have the skills to achieve the best possible outcomes for the most marginalised and disadvantaged members of our community.
Study university worldwide
First step, here. Next step, anywhere. Your social work studies can take you to just about any country in the world. And when you study with ACU, you can complete part of your degree at one of our partner universities overseas – or even study at our Rome Campus.
