Overview

Master of Social Work Critical Leadership in Social Services and Communities

The primary objective of the MSW (Master of Social Work): Critical Leadership in Social Services and Communities is to foster progressive leadership in the community and social service sectors.

The MSW: Critical Leadership in Social Services and Communities supports students’ development of:

  • conceptual, theoretical and analytical skills in relation to social work practices and social policies
  • appreciation of the changing conditions in social services and communities and the complexities and possibilities of ethical leading in the contemporary context
  • the ability to apply these skills and modes of understanding to the practice of leadership

The MSW: Critical Leadership in Social Services and Communities curriculum has two main components:

  1. Required courses that provide foundational knowledge of the critical analysis of social work practice, and the critical analysis of policy;  and required courses that provide analyses and conceptual frameworks about changing conditions in social services and communities, and about leadership
  2. A leadership-focused practicum -- a practical experience of leadership with personalized feedback and mentorship that prepares students for leadership roles in social and community services

Each student will have a leadership practicum  in a social service agency or community organization.
