Pre-Social Work (PSW) Information


Are you exploring the idea of pursuing social work education?

If you have any questions about getting started after viewing the video and the admission pages to the left, please sign up for a live, interactive Q & A session with one of our academic advisors.  These live sessions are held online using ZOOM technology.  You can sign up for a session (held once per month) using our events calendar. 

Note, students can apply directly to Pre-Social Work from high school.  Students who have prior post-secondary education may be eligible to apply directly to the BSW program, if they have already completed the Pre-Social Work requirements. 

Note also that the Yukon BSW program has different course requirements and admission processes.
