Why choose this course?

Justice and human services combines two closely associated areas to offer a concentrated focus on community, support services and the justice system. You will have the opportunity to explore child and family services, disability services, services to young people, and Indigenous health. You can choose either policy and governance or criminology and policing as the major in the justice degree. More than 500 hours of placement are availabe in local, regional and overseas locations. During these placements, you will further develop your assessment and intervention skills and your own practice framework. There are also a number of opportunities for a placement in the justice fields.

This course has a strong focus on contemporary social issues and will develop skills in casework and case management, social policy processes, group and team practice skills, advanced communication, community work, and understanding families and relationships.

Course requirements

There are requirements that you will need to meet as a student in this course. You will need to identify these requirements and ensure you allow sufficient time to meet them. Some of these requirements have associated costs.

Blue card: You must undergo a criminal history check for working with children and be issued with a suitability card (blue card) before commencing clinical placement/practicum in an organisation where they may work with children or young people.
