I have been accepted to the BSW program and am starting next term. Where do I find course syllabus and required texts/readings?
Welcome to the program!
At the beginning of each term (generally on the day classes commence) you will gain access to each course through Learn. On the Learn site, each course will post a syllabus and this syllabus will list the required textbook for the course (if any) and all required readings. Some faculty may choose to deliver paper-based versions of their syllabus to students rather than posting them on the Learn site. In this case, you will receive your syllabus for that course on the first day of class.
