Social work focuses on improving people’s quality of life and helping them to realise their potential – whether you’re working with individuals, families, groups or communities.
The industry empowers people to use the resources available to them to help make a change to their personal issues or those affecting the communities they live in.
VU’s Bachelor of Social Work (Honours) builds on the knowledge gained through the Bachelor of Social Work, offering research experience, advanced analytical skills and theoretical background.

local government human services

hospitals and community health centres
non-government and community-managed human services organisations.
