For over 20 years we have been offering this program in partnership with the University of Calgary, and has
hosted it in several communities across northern Alberta.
A degree in Social Work prepares students with the knowledge and skills necessary for generalist social work
practice. This includes such diverse settings as schools, hospitals, treatment facilities, corrections,
planning councils, family and youth service agencies, and long term care centres. Social workers are
licensed by the Alberta College of Social Workers.
The U of C is in the process of redesigning the BSW curriculum. Students are still invited to attend our institution for
their first two years of study, prior to transferring to U of C for the remainder of the program. Students
will then apply to the Virtual (Online) Learning Circle (VLC) program at the University of Calgary.
The VLC program includes two mandatory week-long residencies (five days each) at U of C's Calgary or Edmonton
campus. The remainder of the program will be delivered online, and as always, U of C will support students
in finding a field practicum in their home community.
