This pathway identifies a recommended pathway for the first two years of study towards a four-year degree in Social Work at BC and Alberta institutions. Admission to a Social Work degree is highly competitive and is not guaranteed. The Associate of Arts degree includes three math and science courses in its breadth requirements. While Social Work program entry requirements vary and are subject to change, few Social Work programs include a math or science requirement. Students who do not wish to earn an Associate of Arts degree may choose to replace one or more of the math and science courses in this pathway with other Arts courses, in consultation with a College of the Rockies education advisor to ensure that all program admission requirements are met.
