Two new courses are now being offered at ACAP; the Master of Social Work and the Master of Social Work (Qualifying).

ACAP’s Master of Social Work (MSW) is aimed at social work practitioners already employed in the human and community services sector who wish to advance their career by increasing their knowledge and skills in advanced practice, supervision and leadership. The focus of this course is on professional development and improving the quality of social work practice. It can be completed in two trimesters (full-time) and is available to domestic students only.

ACAP’s Master of Social Work (Qualifying) [MSW (Q)] is a two-year degree that provides a postgraduate level qualification into the social work profession, comprising a significant practical component in the form of two field education placements. This course has been submitted for accreditation approval with the Australia Association for Social Workers (AASW) and is available to both domestic and international students.

“The courses are practical but with a strong theoretical base; the MSW aims to build on the knowledge and skills of those in the human and community services, while the MSW(Q) provides a practical and industry recognised postgraduate qualification” says Professor Carolyn Noble, ACAP’s Head of School of Social Work.

The two courses will be offered on-campus in Sydney from Trimester 2 – classes start 2 June.
