Master of Social Work (MSW)

Family walking and talking on campus
Practicum placements are an opportunity for the student to gain work experience in the social work field under the supervision of an experienced professional.

Our fully accredited MSW programs nurture accountable and oppositional education, research and practice in the advancement of decolonization, Indigenous-focused, anti-racist, feminist and queer (among other) social justice struggles. It supports the experienced practitioner to think critically, creatively and theoretically about practice and policy, and the political contexts within which social work is situated.

We offer three distinct programs that lead to a Master of Social Work degree:

Advanced

The MSW Advanced program is available to applicants who currently hold a BSW degree from an accredited program.

Indigenous focus

The Master of Social Work degree for social workers working in Indigenous social work settings is available to applicants who currently hold a BSW degree from an accredited program.

Foundation

The MSW Foundation program includes a qualifying foundation year of studies followed by entry into the MSW Advanced program or MSW Indigenous specialization with permission.
