About Social Work

About Social Work

The School of Social Work offers an undergraduate program leading to a Bachelor of Social Work (B.S.W.) degree. The B.S.W. program:

  1. prepares students for generalist social work practice in a range of health and social service positions (the B.S.W. represents the point of admission into the Ordre des Travailleurs Sociaux et des Thérapeutes Conjugaux et Familiaux du Québec (OTSTCFQ) and the Canadian Association of Social Workers);
  2. prepares students for entry into specialized professional studies at the graduate level.

A 90-credit program is offered to students entering from CEGEP or equivalent, students who transfer from within McGill or other universities, and mature students. For more information, refer to the School's website.

For those wanting to practice social work in Quebec, please note that Quebec law requires candidates seeking admission to the professional social work order of Quebec (OTSTCFQ) to demonstrate a working knowledge of the French language. For more information, please see our Working in Quebec page.

Applications are encouraged from persons of diverse backgrounds, including Aboriginal Peoples, members of minority groups, and persons with low income.

The objectives of the B.S.W. program are to provide an academic environment where students can develop:

  • integrated social work knowledge pertaining to history, theory, research, practice modalities, and policies that influence the delivery of health and social services;
  • professional skills in well-established methods of practice with individuals, families, and groups in communities and organizations;
  • understanding of the factors, processes, and forces that form and govern social policy in Canada, and the skills to work toward policy improvement and change;
  • awareness of various dimensions of diversity and how they intersect in an increasingly heterogeneous society;
  • a sense of identity as an intervening agent in social work practice and a sense of responsibility that accompanies acts of intervention; and
  • a commitment to advancing knowledge and improving skills within ethical social work practice that are the prerequisites for more advanced studies at the graduate level.

While not a prerequisite for admission, working knowledge of the French language is important not only for candidates who intend to seek admission to the OTSTCFQ, but also for those who will be completing a field placement in the province of Quebec.

For detailed admission information for the B.S.W., see www.mcgill.ca/socialwork/prospective/bsw/admissions.
