Overview

Bachelor of Social Work (Honours)

Social Work is a dynamic and evolving profession. Preparation for professional practice begins with the Bachelor of Social Work (Honours).

The Social Work Program provides a learning environment characterized by excellence in social work education directed towards developing and fostering principled and competent professional practitioners. 

The BSW (Honours) Program at King's University College is not offered online.

BSW Program Objectives

It is critical for the BSW graduates to acquire skills needed to think holistically, and to engage in the complex dynamics of person and environment interactions. 

Students are expected to approach practice from an informed planned practice strategy (i.e., engagement, assessment, intervention, and evaluation), with problem-solving skills, and an emphasis on the strengths perspective. 

Students acquire the knowledge and skills needed to be effective entry-level practitioners through a foundational curriculum.

  • Depth and Breadth of Knowledge
    BSW graduates are prepared to apply social work knowledge, as well as knowledge from other disciplines, to advance professional practice, policy development, research, and service provision.
  • Knowledge of Methodologies
    BSW graduates acquire knowledge and skills to critique, apply, or participate in social work research.
  • Application of Knowledge
    BSW graduates are equipped with knowledge and skills to competently perform various interactive practices such as engagement, assessment, interventions, negotiation, mediation, advocacy, and evaluation.
  • Communication Skills
    BSW graduates will be able to demonstrate effective oral and written communication in working with individuals, families, groups, organizations, communities, and colleagues.
  • Awareness of Limits of Knowledge
    BSW graduates will be able to employ critical thinking in professional practice - social work students develop skills in critical thinking, and reassessing to analyze complex situations and make professional judgments.
  • Autonomy and Professional Capacity
    BSW graduates will be able to identify as professional social workers and adopt a value perspective of the social work profession.
