Department of Social Work

Welcome to the Department of Social Work

The Department of Social Work maintains an emphasis on working with Indigenous and rural communities.  Coursework is designed to decolonize mainstream social work education practices by building reciprocal and dynamic relationships and to support people who are rooted in their communities. 

Our rigorous programs are fully accredited by the Council on Social Work Education and have options to meet your needs in advancing your current career, making a transition, or adding a degree to amplify your voice to better serve the community you call home.
