Social Science Faculty Package Course List

To encourage students to gain exposure to knowledge outside their Major discipline, each Faculty provides a Faculty Package: this allows students to take courses normally worth up to 9 credit units outside their Major but within the Faculty, thus broadening their knowledge beyond their chosen fields of specialisation. Credit units thus earned will count towards their Major Requirements.


The Department of Social Work provides the following Faculty Package courses for students of Faculty of Social Science:

SOWK1001 Introduction to Social Work and Social Welfare 3
