Social Work

As a social worker, you will be involving yourself in the lives of others, particularly in the lives of children and women who are victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse, in the lives of children who are in foster care, in the lives of families who are looking to adopt and in the lives of those who are victims of poverty, living in the shelters, in poor communities or as homeless people on the streets. The Social Work program prepares you for this enormous challenge, teaching you the principles of the social welfare program, the foundations of social justice, basic theories in psychology and sociology, and various therapies used in counseling. You will also tackle various issues in social work, such as racism, family violence, conflict management, criminal justice, aging, addiction and feminism.
