Social Work (offered in French only)
This program trains specialists in social work who can intervene directly with individuals, groups and communities, but who also have solid training in theoretical concepts as well as in social contexts and social work policy.
Through a combination of classroom instruction and two full practicum terms, students learn to apply intervention skills in the context of issues linked to poverty and social inequality (based on sex, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and physical and mental abilities). The program leads to professional accreditation.
Note: This program is offered in French only.

This program provides students with international opportunities as of their third year of study.
“In my first year, I took a variety of courses (psychology, criminology, philosophy, sociology, women’s studies). Introduction to social work was my favourite! I loved not just the course content, but also the fact that that it encouraged all the students to get involved in the community. In second year, I worked on another community project (in a women’s shelter), and then I did two more work-study programs in third year and fourth year. From the outset, the program let me forge links with different communities. I acquired valuable work experience and I was able to strike a happy balance between practice and learning theory in the classroom.”
Stacey Wharton, graduate
“Society is ever changing. Different social mutations are constantly projecting new realities. In social work, we are interested in the impact that these realities have on individuals, on communities and on society in general.”
Rocheny Alexandre, student
