Social workers help people improve their lives, relationships and communities. They address problems that contribute to injustice. Social workers deal with a variety of challenges including unemployment, poverty, homelessness, domestic violence and child abuse.|
Memorial will provide a rich learning experience that will immerse you in the knowledge, values and skills necessary for effective social work practice, and the pursuit of social justice for all. Itís a career for true believers. Our bachelor of social work program is fully accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Social Work. You will learn strategies for working with and counselling individuals, families, groups and communities, as well as advocacy techniques and social policy analysis. Through two supervised field placements, you will put these skills into action and gain invaluable experience while you help people in the community. At least one of your placements may be located outside an urban centre. You will learn to make a real difference in the lives of people who need your help.
