About

The new Master of Social Work (MSW) curriculum from Wilfrid Laurier University is designed to be at the cutting edge of contemporary social work practice. Two years of planning and consultation with stakeholders have transformed our program vision and delivery.

Overview

The  curriculum of the Social Work program at Wilfrid Laurier University emphasizes the development of critically reflexive practice skills through the ongoing integration of knowledge, theory and practice within a framework that promotes the advancement of equity, inclusivity, reflexivity and social justice. 

It is the anticipation that graduates of our program will walk alongside those with whom they work, in collaborative, inclusive, reflexive and caring ways and that they will stand up for what they believe is just.
