The Social Work program offered by the Laurentian University aims to educate social workers who can apply critical analyses to respond to those in need in order to promote social change, problem-solving in the context of social justice and respect for human rights, and to improve the general well-being of individuals, groups, communities, and society.
Working holistically while recognizing and advancing human rights, you will have the opportunity to respond to those in need in order to promote social change and justice.
Help individuals, as well as society, thrive by promoting positive change and work to give all people an equal opportunity to be healthy. Work with community organizations and government policies to level the playing field and give people opportunities to grow and develop into their best selves.
What do Social Workers do?
Work in schools, hospitals, mental health agencies, with children and youth, in addiction treatment, crisis intervention, and violence against women programs, and in the areas of community development, social policy, corrections, disability services, and gerontology.
Graduates can rest assured knowing there is a multitude of career options they can explore post-graduation. Many of these careers can be found in the public and private sector.
