The goal of social work is to improve the quality of life for individuals, families, groups, and communities dealing with various social issues. The degree will help you develop the knowledge, skills and experience necessary to advocate for social justice. The program offers theoretical course work within social sciences like economics, political science, psychology, and sociology. You will explore human rights, gender issues, diverse cultures, marginalized people, mental health, distribution of wealth, power and inequality, violence, disabilities, and addiction. You will gain applied experience through practicum placements, which will help you
apply the theories you’ve gained in class to field practice. During Year 2, students are required to apply for admission consideration to Years 3 & 4 (professional years). Admission to the first or second year of the
program does not guarantee acceptance into the professional years and is conditional on both academic and non-academic criteria.
