    Graduate Certificate in Community Development

    About

    This course will introduce you to the community development ideas and practices used to create and foster community-led change in settings around Australia and beyond.

    This course is designed for community work practitioners and graduates with an interest in moving into emerging fields that embrace the ideas and practices of community development, and want to broaden their knowledge through an introductory postgraduate course.

    You'll study real and living community projects that build on cultural strength in remote areas, urban agriculture and sustainability projects, grassroots creative arts projects, activism work and much more. Combine case studies, documentaries, films and other creative digital forms that showcase examples of community work and attend workshops designed to teach creative ways of getting the community involved.
