In addition to building upon your general knowledge of community development theory and practice, the Graduate Diploma in Community Development is designed to give you specialist knowledge in social research and community participatory methods. You will study community development theory, settings and policy formation and develop skills in community planning, research methods and program evaluation. As part of your studies you will either undertake a placement with a community organisation or carry out a community-based research project.
This course will enhance your qualifications and open opportunities for social research and working in industry areas such as community and social services, local government, overseas aid work, economic and social planning, sustainable development and Indigenous governance.
