Social Sciences

CHC’s School of Social Sciences seeks to understand the forces that drive modern society. This journey of discovery allows us to make positive and significant changes not only to ourselves but the broader community.

Understanding the needs of people from a godly perspective and bringing into line our stance on compassionate care and social justice is imperative to bring healing to a broken world.

The School of Social Sciences offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses, from Diploma to Masters levels, which provide generalist Social Sciences studies as well as specialised areas of study in Counselling, Disability and Aged Care, Family Support and Child Protection, and Human Behaviour.

Christian Heritage College is an Affiliated Organisation of PACFA (Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia).
