Postgraduate research courses in social work are for people who want to develop advanced research knowledge and skills to influence social policy or facilitate change. These courses involve developing and undertaking a research project, and can lead to careers in areas such as research and academia. Current postgraduate research projects include working with refugees, young people and cyberspace, and the social impacts of gambling. Other research topics include social inclusion, health, ageing and mental health.
The School of Sociology and Social Work has a strong reputation for research and welcomes applications from those seeking to undertake higher degree research in social work (i.e. Master of Arts or Doctor of Philosophy).
For information about entry requirements, application procedures and scholarships for higher research degrees, please contact the Graduate Research Office. We recommend that international students also view the International Students website for details.
