Career Pathways

Our Master of Social Work Program will prepare students for advanced social work practice in a range of settings related to health, including public health and health promotion programs, primary care and long-term care, hospitals, health-related governmental agencies, community-based health services, and health advocacy groups.

Practicing in this field involves working with individuals, families, groups, communities and organizations on issues such as health promotion and disease prevention, health promotion in the workplace, health education, treatment and rehabilitation, building community partners and social support, and/or health reform promotion.

The program and its courses will assume a holistic view of health that incorporates the political, environmental, psychosocial, biological, and spiritual determinants of health in social work practice.
