What to expect
Located at our Lansdowne campus, the Associate of Arts Degree in Pre-Social Work is a 20-course, two-year program that is also offered part-time for those who need flexibility. You'll have a definite learning path, but with room to explore along the way. During your program, you can choose to take an optional internship or co-op work term.
This program contains a blend of arts and science courses to support the concept of a broad education. Learn more.
In your first year, you'll take courses in English, sociology, psychology as well as arts and science electives.
In your second year, you'll dig deeper into the study of social work. You'll also take additional arts and science elective courses to support your core studies.
After you have completed at least eight courses, you can choose to complement your associate degree with a work term.
