Indigenous Teacher Education
Education at JCU has a proud history of providing teacher education for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our graduates have gone on to make a difference to the education of all Australians through their work as classroom teachers, advisory teachers, school leaders and principals, education administrators, university academics, community and family members and leaders. We encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to consider a career as a teacher and make a difference in the lives of future generations.

Students are eligible to apply for admission to Honours when they meet the following criteria:

Achievement of an overall grade point average of 5.0 (i.e. credit average) across their bachelor degree, with credits or better in discipline-specific areas is required. Students graduating from a MSW (PQ) are also eligible to apply and will require a credit average.
Application Process: Students are required to complete the following:

A special Committee of the Social Work and Human Services Academic Group (SWHSAG) will be called to discuss the Honours applications after the Examiners meeting at the end of study period 2. This committee must comprise at least, the Honours Coordinator and the HoAG, or their representatives. It is expected that the Honours Coordinator will present the research proposals to the meeting in a summarised form. Students will be advised in writing of the results of their application soon after the Committee has met.
Social Work Academic Group
The Social Work Academic Group, which includes the Women's Studies Research Group, is committed to education and practice which are informed by critical insights into structural inequalities and inequities, and which contribute at both individual and collective levels to a socially just and sustainable society. The group seeks to achieve this through high quality teaching and research, critical scholarship and active community service. In doing so, the we acknowledge the traditional owners of Australia, value diversity and recognise the international context of practice.
Social Work and Human Services staff collaboratively and individually undertake strategic and applied research, consultancies and contracted professional development. They engage in this industry-engaged research and development in partnership with government departments at Commonwealth, state and local levels and with local, regional and national nongovernment organisations.
Past and current research activity of the Department has been grouped into the following areas of interest: Families, Children and Youth; Women and Gender; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders; Regional, Rural and Remote Contexts; Community Well-being and Ecological Social Justice; Mental Health and Social Justice; Learning and Teaching; Human Rights.
