Master Social Work - Máster en Trabajo Social
The Master of Counselling Social Work (MCSW) is a 2-year part-time program offered through the School of Social Sciences. Please note that the intake for this program occurs every 2nd year. The next intake of commencing students will be for Semester 1, 2017.
The MCSW is designed for practising social workers, to consolidate and extend counselling knowledge and skills. Two commitments provide the cohering framework of the program - the first is to family-sensitive practice, and the second is to counselling methods that are orientated to clients´ strengths and that promote resilience.
The MCSW develops students´ knowledge and skills in counselling by building on professional social work experience and providing a systemic and relational orientation to counselling. During the program, students study a number of counselling approaches and apply these approaches to their own counselling practice. The MCSW addresses key aspects of selected frameworks relevant to social work practice.
