La Trobe's Master of Social Work is for graduates of other disciplines who wish to move into social work from a related area. The course will equip students with direct practice, social policy, social research, organisational planning and administration, and to conduct effective community work. The curriculum is based on a philosophy of social justice. Practical placements allow students to gain valuable skills and experience in the field by working alongside professionals. In each year throughout the study period, students will complete a supervised 70-day block placement to develop their skills required for professional practice. The Master of Social Work is accredited by the Australian Association of Social Workers (AASW). Membership may require an application to the professional body and may have additional or ongoing requirements beyond the completion of the degree.
