Bachelor of Social Work and Social Work Diploma

The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) is Alberta's first direct entry into a four-year degree that offers a generalist approach to social work practice. The option to pursue advanced study within a concentration is available. Courses in social work practice, theory, policy, and research are grounded within contemporary theoretical frameworks, including decolonization, Indigenous ways of knowing, anti-oppressive practice, and strengths perspectives. The BSW will prepare you for practice with individuals, children and families, groups, and communities in complex social settings.


The Social Work Diploma is the perfect place for committed, passionate people who want to help enhance the well-being of all members of our society.
