Since its inception in 1966, the Lyle S. Hallman Faculty of Social Work (FSW) has developed a national and international reputation for excellence in teaching, research, and practicum instruction. The FSW offers social work programs at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels.  The BSW program, located at Laurier's Brantford campus, offers a generalist BSW with a unique focus on Aboriginal issues.  The MSW program has an overarching framework of social justice, equity, inclusivity and relexivity and provides students flexibility in choosing the direction of their learning in micro and/or macro social work practice. more

People at Laurier

Sharon Shavel, Faculty of Social Work Sharon Shavel was born to Israeli immigrant parents who moved to the Toronto area a couple of years before she was born. Sharon came to the Waterloo region to obtain her undergrad degree.“During my last year of undergrad I learned more about the MSW program at WLU from the numerous information sessions and all the information provided online and began the application process. I was attracted to coming back to the KW area I had fallen in love with. The program is really convenient considering its many course possibilities, the diverse research interests among the professors, and the practicum possibilities are endless.” The well-located downtown Kitchener campus provides students with many places to go between and after classes. Its proximity to city hall offers a number of opportunities for students in the community based stream, and there are also many housing prospects close to campus or near a bus stop.
