Why Bachelor of Social Science (Human Services)
Why this Degree
Learn from industry experts and award-winning researchers, gain practical experience in our on-campus Social Work Studios, and build workplace networks when you complete field education placements during your final year.
In the custom-built studios you will work alongside field practitioners and academic staff in simulated, real-life situations. Using state-of-the-art recording equipment and cameras, you can review your work and learn from your experiences. Third year work placements will also provide valuable experience during which you will experience first-hand what it’s like to work in local, rural and international settings.
You will complete 560 hours of work placements during two work placements in your third year. This real-world experience is a major focus and provides valuable hands-on experience and the opportunity for you to build important industry relationships. We also host regular University-wide employee master classes and employment expos, and alumni events in Australia and overseas.
