Social Work, Community and Human Services at RMIT
Social work, community and human services professions incorporate a number of different activities all of which seek to redress social inequality and injustice. While some help formulate and implement social policies, participate in social research, manage programs or assist community groups to develop services, others provide personal services to individuals, families and small groups. These services include counselling, conflict management and crisis work.
We are particularly concerned with the experience of marginalisation, poverty and oppression and seek to understand how social divisions such as class, gender, cultural diversity, sexual preference, mental health, ability and disability and age influence the experiences of people.
Our programs are designed with partner organisations to enhance the effectiveness of learning for individuals and employers, and to provide for life-long learning as new training needs are identified.
