The Master of Social Work based in Indigenous Knowledges supports students to:
- work from Indigenous perspectives;
- understand the colonial history of events which have led to present circumstances;
- understand social justice, anti-oppressive practices, anti-colonialism, and Indigenism;
- explore Indigenous forms of helping and support(s) applicable to social work;
- recover and support Indigenous values, practices, and structures;
- empower Indigenous identities;
- maintain a close connection with Indigenous communities and agencies;
- and develop as advanced social work practitioners.
This work is relevant to Indigenous and non-Indigenous persons in their personal and professional development as social workers with advanced training.
