This degree includes the study of community development theories and practices informed by a diversity of critical theory. Students develop specialised knowledge in community development and explore the ‘use of self’ in professional practice, then undertake an exploration of working with various communities to understand the importance of context and communication. This course builds on the graduate diploma by providing an opportunity to complete an individual research or fieldwork project in regional areas, interstate, or overseas. Combining reflection on work in the field with an appreciation of a range of theoretical frameworks is intended to contribute to the ability to undertake critically reflective practice.
