Overview

Bachelor of Social Work

The Bachelor of Social Work program at Nipissing University is committed to preparing students for generalist social work practice characterised by: 

High ethical standards, critical thinking, creativity, research-mindedness and the promotion of human rights, inclusion and equality. 

The principles of anti-oppressive practice underpin our program’s emphasis on social work with diverse identities in northern, rural and remote contexts, including Indigenous and Franco-Ontarian communities. 

Through a blend of classical and innovative teaching approaches, the University is dedicated to establishing a positive climate for learning through supportive interaction, integrity, personal growth and creative expression. 

Our integration of classroom and experiential learning values the development of core competencies for relationship-based social work with individuals, families and groups and for structural approaches to effect positive social change to build communities where everyone thrives.​​​

Nipissing's Bachelor of Social Work program has earned pre-accreditation status from the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE-ACFTS).

Students must apply for admission consideration to the professional years during the Second Year of the Bachelor of Social Work program. 

Admission to the first or second year of the Bachelor of Social Work program does not guarantee acceptance into the professional years.
