Social Work - Course Structure

MSW(Q) students must complete 96 credit points, including 78 credit points of core units and three elective units of study (18 credit points). The core units comprise seven campus-based units of study and two field education placements, each of which is worth 18 credit points. The program can be taken either full time over two years, or part time over four years. Note that:

  • The core unit, Social Work Practice (SCWK5010), must be taken in your first semester.

  • One elective must be a research unit.

  • Some core units and electives are offered in alternate years (see below).

An overview of the program, including units of study and course resolutions, can be viewed at the faculty handbook entry for the MSW(Q).

Because the MSW(Q) program incorporates flexibility and enables choice in tailoring the course to students’ learning goals, students are encouraged to plan their studies at least two semesters in advance, in consultation with a program director if necessary.
