Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject provides graduate entry students into the Master of Social Work with opportunities to utilise their prior learning and experience to: (i) identify and define the key social problems confronting today's social workers and the consequent social purpose and distinguishing functions of twenty-first century social work; (ii) develop an understanding and awareness of culturally competent practice through recognition of the experiences of 'difference' with particular reference to Indigenous Australians; (iii) understand diversity, particularly as this relates to the critical tradition's emphasis on marginalisation/exclusion; (iv) analyse the history and development of social work as a key profession in the pursuit of social justice.
