In a social work degree, you will learn about supporting and resolving personal and social relationship issues between individuals, families, groups, organisations and communities. Social workers maintain a dual focus on both assisting with wellbeing as well as identifying external issues that may impact this wellbeing. There is a strong demand for qualified social workers and job opportunities are broad and incredibly rewarding.
