Social workers address barriers, inequities and injustices in society. They respond to personal and social challenges, building on capacities, facilitating and advocating for change. McGill's School of Social Work prepares students for generalist (B.S.W.), and specialized (M.S.W.) professional practice in relation to children and their families, health and social care settings, and community and international development. Our curriculum integrates theory, research, policy and practice to prepare students to engage with diverse populations and settings in Quebec, across Canada and around the world.
