We have 110 faculty members and over 8,500 enrolments in two schools and two departments. Studies range from the master’s level to employment courses for those with learning challenges. About half our students connect with studies in other TRU faculties. Data from the BC Ministry of Advanced Education shows that 92 percent of education and social work graduates are in the labour force within two years. About three-quarters have jobs related to their program.


If you’re innovative and have a drive to help others through new knowledge, then here at the Faculty of Education and Social Work you can learn how to research. You can be part of solving ongoing social and educational challenges. It’s brave and innovative work, and it’s all in a day for our researchers and research students at the Faculty of Education and Social Work.


Graduates from the Faculty of Education and Social Work courses go on to join the labour force at exceptional levels, and to find success in further studies.
