Program Info

Please be advised that the Pre-M.S.W., M.S.W., and Ph.D. programs are not offered via distance or on-line education.

The Pre-M.S.W. program is designed to prepare students who do not have a B.S.W. degree from an accredited university, or its equivalent, for entry to the M.S.W. program. It is intended to build on the existing background and experience of students by providing them with an opportunity for focused study on Canadian social welfare policy, generalist social work practice, the philosophy and values of the profession of social work, including content on diversity and anti-oppression, and supervised practice in the field of social work.

The Pre-M.S.W. program is a one year program; however, students have up to 3 years to complete it.

Pre-master's programs are assessed fees, the same as undergraduate programs (per credit hour). The Pre-M.S.W. program fees are assessed the same as the B.S.W. program. Fee information for all programs may be found on the Registrar's Office website.
