Welcome to the School of Arts and Social Sciences | Eastern College Australia

Welcome to the School of Arts and Social Sciences

The goal of the School of Arts and Social Sciences is to provide a broad, flexible education. It includes opportunities for students to develop broad philosophical and theoretical frameworks. It helps provide a base on which to develop task-specific skills and outcomes.

Employers benefit from graduates who have a broad educational experience, strong values, clear personal commitments, and who are socially aware and responsible.

Eastern College Australia has continued to develop its Counselling courses in response to community needs and changes in the counselling profession. Eastern started to offer counselling courses in 1987, with the most recent addition of a Graduate Diploma in Arts, specialising in counselling.

We are excited by the growing number of Christians wanting to equip themselves to counsel professionally. Many perceive a calling to professional practice in the market place as a missional engagement with people outside the church. Other Christians see themselves participating with their local church in providing a professional counselling service to people within and outside the church.

Eastern's counselling and psychology academic staff have strong links with a wide range of church and community based counselling organisations. We are committed to learning with and from the best practitioners, many of whom teach with us. Come and learn as you sharpen your skills in this vibrant and engaged set of programs.
