Course Requirements 2014-2018

Timeline to Program Completion

A new BSW program is now in effect.  If you were admitted to the BSW program between January 2014 and 2018, you may continue to follow your current program requirements; however, you must complete the requirements by April 30, 2023.  If you do not complete these program requirements by the deadline you will be switched over to the new program, and will be required to complete any additional courses constituting the new program requirements.

Note: Stale Dated Courses:

  • Required Social Work courses taken more than 10 years prior to commencing a practicum in the BSW are considered 'stale dated'.  Students will be required to update their knowledge by repeating stale dated Social Work courses.
  • This policy excludes Social Work elective courses and general university courses.
  • Social Work courses that have contributed to completed Social Work credentials (i.e. certificate or diploma) will not be subject to this stale-dating policy.
