Why study social work at Flinders?
Our degrees teach you to analyse, implement and evaluate social welfare policies and services. More than that, we aim to foster imaginative, flexible thinking that engages with the community and recognises wider social, cultural, economic and environmental contexts.
Work alongside and advocate for those who can’t speak for themselves. With a foundational understanding of Australian social issues, inequalities and challenges, social work roles vary from child protection, disability advocacy, working with older people, policy development, community engagement and activism.
This professionally accredited degree will increase your confidence and enable you to have a career as an advocate for human rights. You can promote and support awareness of the injustices in today’s society, and by working with policies, people, families and communities, make a positive change.
Social work contributes to a more just society.
