About this course

The Bachelor of Social Work with Honours (BSW(Hons)) provides an advanced option at 400-level for students completing the BSW degree. BSW(Hons) students complete the main requirements of the BSW degree but also take extra courses of a more research-intensive nature and produce a dissertation. Achievement of a BSW(Hons) provides either an excellent pathway into Social Work practice (particularly where a strong research element is required) or establishes students with foundational skills in postgraduate-level social work research as a basis for continuing on to further postgraduate study.

Students are selected for entry into the BSW(Hons) at 400-level based on academic achievement in 300-level BSW courses.

Entry requirements

  1. Admission to the programme shall be subject to the approval of the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Humanities).
