About this course

Social workers promote human wellbeing and foster social inclusion. They mobilise the forces of individuals, the community and state organisations to transform lives and create lasting and meaningful social change.

RMIT University has been teaching social work for over 40 years and our programs continue to reflect up-to-date ideas about social work and its place in a changing world.

Our classroom is the city and our graduates are resilient, outspoken members of society who advocate a fairer world for all.

Field education forms a large component of the social work program. You'll undertake 140 days of work placements within human and community service organisations.
