Undergraduate

BSW

The Faculty of Social Work provides post secondary education throughout Alberta. Undergraduate programs accredited by the Canadian Association for Social Work Education are offered from the Faculty's home location in Calgary, the Edmonton-based Central & Northern Region, the Lethbridge-based Southern Region, and, in communities around the province, through the Learning Circles program. The undergraduate social work curriculum delivered from Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge prepares students for generalist practice in urban areas. The Learning Circles program is delivered virtually and in rural and remote communities. Its curriculum prepares students for practice that is geographically relevant and particularly sensitive to the needs of First Nations and M├ętis peoples. The Learning Circles program is administered from Calgary for the virtual site, from Edmonton for sites in central and northern communities, and from Lethbridge for sites in southern communities.

Students may study for the BSW degree on a full-time or part-time basis; if part-time, students may be required to follow a prescribed sequence of courses.

The Faculty of Social Work's admission routes into its different programs are described in the section 4.1 BSW Routes.
