Student Handbook & Practicum Manual

The Mount Royal University Social Work Diploma program is an accredited program through the Alberta College of Social Workers under the Health Professions Act. 

Program outcomes are established by the ACSW in collaboration with Alberta diploma programs.

Social work students should be familiar with, understand, and adhere to the values and standards outlined in the Canadian Association of Social Workers’ Code of Ethics (2005) and the Alberta College of Social Workers Standards of Practice (2019). Both of these documents are available for download at the ACSW website.

Information on the policies, practices, and deadlines related to the program are detailed in the Social Work Handbook and Practicum Manual. Students are required to review this information and ensure they are in compliance prior to and throughout this course.
