Master of Social Work (Professional Qualifying)

Students choose JCU because of the university's well-deserved reputation for delivering courses that are highly valued by employers. The JCU Master of Social Work (Professional Qualifying) is a wise study choice if you have a particular interest in working with people and communities in Northern Australia and beyond.

If you are a graduate with some social science background, you can choose this course to gain a post graduate qualification in social work. You may be eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning for one field education placement if you already have significant social welfare and human services experience.

When added to your existing undergraduate degree, your JCU Master of Social Work (Professional Qualifying) gives you a professionally accredited social work qualification that's recognised by the Australian Association of Social Workers.
