Overview

Flinders offers two distinct Masters programs in social work: the Master of Social Work which is a coursework degree and the Master of Arts (Social Work) which is a research degree. Different pathways are available depending on your prior educational experience.

Graduates who complete the Master of Social Work (Graduate entry pathway for applicants who have a Bachelors degree other than in Social Work) are eligible for membership with the Australian Association of Social Workers.

The Master of Social Work (Advanced) is designed to meet the diverse educational needs of qualified and experienced social workers who have a recognised Bachelor or Master of Social Work degree.
