Program Information

School: MacEwan University
Faculty: Faculty of Health & Community Studies
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Social Work
Description: Transformative, collaborative and supportive education: it’s at the heart of what we do. The same qualities are at the heart of what social workers do when they work with families, provide support and transform lives in the communities where they live and work.

The Bachelor of Social Work—the first Edmonton-based social work degree, and only the second in Alberta—will enable our Social Work diploma students to continue their studies in their home institution. And they’ll learn from faculty who are engaged in research, blended learning and all areas of social work practice.
