In this course, you'll learn how to make a difference in local communities by working closely with schools, local councils, ecologists, Indigenous groups, social services organisations, resource companies, universities and other groups.
You'll explore how to encourage people to get more involved in locally designed projects, experience different examples of community development projects and learn about the history of community work, policy and the diversity of communities. Your core units will include 'Introduction to Community Development', 'Creative Ways to Work with Community', 'Social Policy and Community Action', and 'Indigenous Community Development'.
When you graduate, you will be well equipped for a career in local government, community services, remote area education, Indigenous communities, community arts and cultural development, overseas aid work, sustainable development, social work-related areas, or economic, social and urban planning.
At the end of your degree, you will graduate with the knowledge and practical skills needed to work in a range of scenarios.
