The Bachelor of Social Work Program is a professional program that is designed to prepare generalists who are knowledgeable of social work theories, and who can demonstrate skills related to practice, research, and social policy analysis.
The B.S.W. program is offered at multiple geographic sites including the Fort Garry Campus, the William Norrie Centre (Inner-city), the Université de Saint-Boniface, and Thompson, Manitoba as well as by Distance Delivery.
Fort Garry Campus
The B.S.W program at the Fort Garry Campus offers students full-time, part-time, and concentrated studies to better accommodate students. The Faculty offers Concentration in Child and Family Services as well as Interfaculty Option in Aging for students interested in working with seniors.
The Faculty has extended the concept of accessibility to include geographical accessibility through the delivery of the B.S.W. based on two approaches: (1) to individuals by means of an online study program and (2) to community-based groups using the cohort method.
The Distance Delivery B.S.W. program is intended to encourage individuals who are employed in the social services and living outside of Winnipeg, but who may not have had the opportunity to pursue professional social work education.
Inner City Social Work Program
The Inner City Social Work ACCESS Program at the William Norrie Centre is an inner-city extension of the Faculty of Social Work. Students admitted to the centre are accepted directly into a four-year B.S.W. program, and do not require prior university study.
Northern Social Work Program
The Northern Bachelor of Social Work program, based in Thompson Manitoba, is an extension of the Fort Garry Faculty of Social Work. Students are admitted directly into a four-year B.S.W. program and do not require prior university study.
