Description: Our Honours Bachelor of Social Work program has a particular focus on Social Work in and with northern, rural, remote, Indigenous, and franco-Ontarian communities. Graduates of the program will be prepared to practice anti-oppressive Social Work at the entry level with diverse populations in a Canadian context. Students will use structural, Anishinaabe, and feminist approaches to critically analyze the ways that social contexts shape personal and social problems. The program includes a 700-hour field placement in the fourth year that will link Social Work concepts, values, and theories to practice. Since the program is competitive, a separate application is required for admission to the professional years (years three and four).
