Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Social Work
Description:You want social change and are destined to tackle issues that relate to inequality, human rights and social justice problems within our global community. The Social Work program within the School of Human and Social Development at Nipissing is grounded on the principles of social justice and we place an emphasis on the historical and contemporary position of Aboriginal peoples in Canada, as well as rural and Northern contexts. The program is characterized by its approach to the study of social justice, which examines systems of oppression, domination and discrimination between diverse and intersecting topic areas of, among others, ability, ethnicity, age, and sexuality. A 700 hour practicum is integral to the program, will help to integrate theoretical knowledge with practice, and is designed to develop practice, critical thinking, and strategic analysis skills.
