This program trains specialists who can perform case work with individuals, groups and communities and who have a solid grasp of both the theories and the social and political contexts surrounding social work. Through a combination of classroom instruction and two full practicum sessions, students learn to apply intervention techniques in the context of issues linked to poverty and social inequalities (based on sex, ethnicity, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, etc.). 

This program is offered in French only.

The French immersion stream is available with this program.

Requirements for this program have been modified. Please consult the 2017-2018 calendars for the previous requirements.
