Overview

Algoma University’s four-year Bachelor of Social Work degree prepares students for generalist social work practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations, communities, and societies.

You will examine a variety of topics and will understand how northern communities significantly differ from urban communities in regards to health services, family and child welfare, and the social welfare system. Our graduates will understand crisis intervention, and how to deal with victims of abuse, including those who were affected by the residential school system in Canada. Unlike any other Ontario university, Algoma U is situated on the former site of the Shingwauk Indian Residential School and offers special lectures and guest presentations from residential school Survivors. Many fellow classmates may in fact be Survivors. This provides the students with a unique learning experience and the opportunity for students to better understand oppression, colonization, and self-determination.

Earn a degree with high career prospects

Social workers are in high demand in Canada, especially in northern, rural, remote areas. Our program was developed in consultation with local employers in Northern Ontario who have cited a growing need for social workers.

Get hands-on experience

In the professional years of your degree, students will complete a 700-hour field practicum which will give students real-life experience working in a social work setting.

Career opportunities

Social work graduates have an easier time finding employment after graduation than graduates in most other fields.
