Course info


The Bachelor of Applied Social Science is a three-year course (full time equivalent) and is available on both a full time and part time basis. The course is designed to provide students with broad and coherent knowledge and skills for professional work and future learning in applied social science discipline areas.

Broadly speaking, the Bachelor of Applied Social Science reflects a desire to engage meaningfully and positively with the important questions of human experience, to the development of the individual, to the improvement of society and to the development of skills and understandings in the area of people helping. Specifically, the course has emphases in theoretical understanding of, and practical skills working with, diverse groups of human beings and the issues they face in modern society, and of the roles and skills required of those working in contemporary applied social sciences contexts. The Bachelor of Applied Social Science also serves as preparation for students to engage in further studies at the postgraduate level.

The Bachelor of Applied Social Science comprises a program of core and elective units. The first year of the course (full time equivalent) comprises a program of core units that introduces students to concepts regarding Christian worldview, the skills and processes required for academic and professional communication within a higher education context, and foundational knowledge and understanding associated with the applied social sciences. The second and third years of the course (full time equivalent) comprise further core units and the opportunity for students to undertake a specialisation within a particular discipline area. The areas from which students may undertake a specialisation are:

Disability and aged care;

Family support and child protection; and

Human behaviour

The following additional specialisations are available only to students who commenced the course prior to 2019:


Community aid and development;

Community mental health; and

Youth work.

Within their particular discipline area, students undertake either a practicum stream or a coursework stream.

The practicum stream offers units in theory, skills, current and emerging issues and reflective practice, together with 400 hours of practicum placements, in the chosen specialisation. The benefits of this stream include: focus on practical application of skills and knowledge experience working in the specialisation; experience working with a mentor; ability to observe others in the specialisation to gain additional industry expertise; potential to network with other professionals in the specialisation; variety of experience and transference of knowledge; and hands-on experience.

The coursework stream offers units in theory, skills, current and emerging issues and reflective practice, as well as an extended self-directed project, in the chosen specialisation. The benefits of this stream include: focus on a specific area of interest in the specialisation; development of evidence-based knowledge to feed into the specialisation; development of a project to assist in the workplace; and development of analytical and evidence-based report writing skills for informing change in the specialisation.
