Human and Community Services (Interpersonal Trauma)


This stream combines policy, practice and research in the human and community services industry specialising in interpersonal trauma. It is designed to equip Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students with foundational knowledge and skills for ongoing work within the human and community services industry. It offers students the opportunity to focus on specific fields of practice, including management, community work and violence against women.

The stream is taught over two semesters of part-time study. Students may commence the stream in either semester. Units are taught face-to-face to allow students to exchange ideas and experiences in a classroom setting. Units of study that are delivered in block mode have online discussion forums.

At the conclusion of the stream, students who choose to progress to any qualification within the Master of Social Work (Qualifying) program may receive credit for units already completed.
