Bachelor of Human Services
Christian Heritage College - Carindale

Course outline

The Bachelor of Human Services offers an employment pathway into contemporary human services contexts. It engages meaningfully with important questions of human experience and develops graduates who are well-equipped to improve society through effective people helping practice. The course emphasises both theory and hands-on experience and develops essential skills in working with diverse groups of people in managing the issues they face in modern society. The course has been developed around hands-on pedagogy and proximity to social services organisations. It offers three specialisation areas: Human Behaviour; Family Support and Child Protection; and Youth Work. Student feedback shows that CHC social sciences students appreciate the professional practice-informed lectures by industry practitioners who teach subjects and offer invited guest lectures in their area of expertise.
