Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Social Work
Course abbreviation: BA/BSW + Course code: 3426
To be eligible for selection into the course, applicants must have studied VCE units 3 and 4 or equivalent. The prerequisites are a study score of at least 25 in English (any).
The mode of selection will be the ENTER and completion of the Social Work department's application form. Application is direct to the Social Work department.
The BA/BSW offers the equivalent of two years studies in arts and two years in social work. The arts component must include an arts major and an arts minor stream, as well as the prerequisite studies of the individual and of society listed under the prerequisites for the Bachelor of Social Work (see Arts faculty offerings for arts units available).
The course structure will be described in general terms because there is a wide variety of choices of arts units that students can select from arts discipline areas. The main structural characteristics of the course are:
The normal pattern of study is for student to study four units per semester;
in semesters where the field placement is undertaken, this is reduced to two
units plus the placement
The AASW prescribed studies can be completed within the two first-year streams, but students may study them in their major or minor sequences if they wish.
The social work component of the degree, as well as the field placements,
are listed under the Bachelor of Social Work entry. The only modifications to
this listing are that SWK3220, SWK3250 and SWK3260 are offered at second-year
level in the double degree so that the arts major can be completed in third
(a) the first year is comprised of arts subjects only
