Description: What is your vision of social justice? Where do you see yourself making a difference? The School of Social Work offers a program of studies leading to the degree of Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) that is fully accredited by the Canadian Association for Social Work Education. Graduates are employed in a wide range of government and voluntary organizations such as family and children’s services, hospitals, women’s services, corrections and Indigenous social services. Our program emphasizes structural, feminist, Indigenous and anti-oppressive analyses. In addition to the comprehensive standard BSW program, we also offer child welfare, Indigenous, and Indigenous child welfare specializations. Learn more about these options under BSW specializations and requirements.

You may choose to complete the program requirements through distance education, with a mandatory five-day session held on-campus at UVic as part of the SOCW 312 program requirement. Distance education courses provide students residing in Canada an opportunity to create a flexible, full- or part-time program of studies. Please note that distance education courses are not facilitated internationally.
