Laurierís Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program is a course of study that incorporates social work curriculum with humanities, arts and sciences co-curricula. The four year BSW program provides a professional social work education experience for students matriculating from high school. This balanced approach promotes student learning and development that is purposeful and holistic and that prepares students for satisfying and productive work and civic participation. Social work students' learning and development will be expanded by knowledge shared from a variety of disciplines. Social work ideas will be connected to other knowledge bases offering points of comparisons and a basis for relating knowledge to life.

Graduates with a BSW degree will be able to:

  • think critically
  • reflect on experiences
  • reason effectively
  • be creative when dealing with new and novel situations

In terms of practice, social work graduates should be able to establish meaningful relationships with others, communicate effectively, and practice ethically.
