Undergraduate Student Association

As students at the School of Social Work, we would like to welcome you. Perhaps you're wondering why you should choose the Master's program in Social Work at the University of Ottawa. Well, here is our list of the top ten reasons why we feel our School is a judicious choice.

  • The School has a small number of students (you're known by name, not by number).
  • It's an entirely Francophone program that favors the acquisition and development of critical analysis skills (you're encouraged to make your ideas and opinions known).
  • No studying long hours for exams! Evaluation rests on writing assignments that allow you to bring to the fore the full breadth of knowledge gained throughout your studies.
  • The program offers you invaluable experiences during your placements.
  • Teaching and administrative staff are attuned to your needs.
  • You will have the opportunity to meet dynamic people and form new friendships.
  • You will always be very well represented by the Student Association.

The Student Association of the School of Social Work was created in September 1999 with the goal of promoting the interests and rights of students registered in the program.

The Association therefore has the following goals :

  • Defend and represent the rights and interests of students before the different committees of the School, the Faculty and the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa.
  • Organize academic, cultural and social activities.

Students are invited to become involved in various committees and councils such as the Council of the School, Programme Commitee on Graduate Studies, the Committee Against Sexual Harassment of the Faculty of Social Sciences, the Graduate Students' Association (GSAÉD) and the Commission on Graduate Studies in the Humanities of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.

All in all, the experience offered to you is one that you will not want to miss. Come join us!

Graduate Student Association

As representatives of the students at the School of Social Work, we would like to welcome you. Perhaps you're wondering why you should choose the Master's program in Social Work at the University of Ottawa? Well, here is our list of the top reasons why we feel our School is a judicious choice ...

  • The School has a small number of students (you're known by name, not by number).
  • It's an entirely Francophone program that favors the acquisition and development of critical analysis skills (you're encouraged to make your ideas and opinions known).
  • You will have the opportunity to work (without pay but seriously, the work terms will offer you invaluable experience).
  • No studying long hours for exams! Evaluation rests on writing assignments that allow you to bring to the fore the full breadth of knowledge gained throughout your studies.
  • No need to write or defend a Master's thesis... There is only a requirement to write a major research paper of at least 50 pages long.
  • Teaching and administrative staff are attuned to your needs.
  • You will have the opportunity to meet dynamic people and form new friendships.
  • You will always be very well represented by the Student Association.

The Graduate Student Association of the School of Social Work was created in September 2012 with the goal of promoting the interests and rights of students registered in the program.

The Association therefore has the following goals:

  • Defend and represent the rights and interests of students before the different committees of the School, the Faculty and the GSAÉD.
  • Improve everyone's student experience
  • Organize academic, cultural and social activities.

The Association currently works as a collective. Therefore, we choose to share and rotate responsibilities, to allow as many people as possible to get involved. We aim to take decisions by consensus, a process in which discussion and respect of different opinions are very important. Transparency and communication with every student are also at the core of our work values.

The Association meetings are open to all graduate students in Social Work. For those who wish to get involved with a specific issue, committees are occasionally created, and everyone is welcome to participate.

For more details, we invite you to visit our Facebook page (ADEDESS – Association des étudiantes et étudiants diplômés en service social) or to email us at adedess.ottawa@gmail.com.
