Undergraduate programs

The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program gives students the tools to help families, individuals and communities, diving into social issues such as poverty, unemployment, domestic violence, and mental health. Graduates of the BSW program go on to work in a number of areas including community development, disability services, corrections and child welfare.
