The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) program at Booth University College prepares students to facilitate change in individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities.
Social workers seek to improve quality of life and well-being, advocate for principles of social justice and equality for the oppressed and vulnerable, work to remove structural disadvantage and create opportunities for people to develop their own skills and resources to reach their own goals.
Booth University College’s Bachelor of Social Work program is available in a four-year degree program and a two-year after-degree program, with a strong emphasis on clinical skills courses. Our faculty have tremendous personal social work experience to share, which helps students understand what they are learning in the classroom. During the course of their studies in social work, students will typically gain more than 800 hours of practical experience during their time in the field. Students also benefit from the unique way we match our students for practicum placement and have our core faculty established as the ones who serve as liaisons for all placements.
Our social work program is a well-respected and sought after program in the province of Manitoba. We are an approved program of the Manitoba College of Social Workers (MCSW) for registration in the province of Manitoba. Although we are not accredited by Canadian Association of Social Work Educators (CASWE), our graduates all qualify for registration as social workers in Manitoba; and many have gone on to register as social workers and practice across Canada as well as complete graduate studies in various universities and programs in Canada and the US.
“Ever since I was little, I’ve wanted to get into a career where I could help and support people. Our family received a lot of help in the refugee camps from social workers and community workers, so I knew that was something I really wanted to do. My way of paying it forward.”
“Booth didn’t feel like some huge institution; it felt very warm and personal. That’s when I knew this was the place where I wanted to pursue my education.”
– Faven Mergia, Graduate, Bachelor of Social Work
