WELCOME TO THE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK IN THE FACULTY OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT AT UBC’s OKANAGAN CAMPUS
UBC consistently ranks among the top 3 universities in Canada  and the top 40 universities world-wide . UBC Okanagan offers a one and two year MSW for those with a BSW (one year MSW) or other undergraduate degree (2 year MSW). There are over 55,000 social workers in Canada , and labour market demand is strong for the profession  across the country .
Our MSW program integrates critical, structural, and social-relational perspectives with clinical knowledge and expertise; and our graduates enter the job market with specialized knowledge and evidence-based expertise. Our programs are fully accredited by the Canadian Association for Social Work Education (CASWE), having recently been awarded a 6-year accreditation .
UBC social work faculty on both campuses were recently recognized as being the third most cited in Canada . Ours is one of the few MSW programs in Canada that teaches exclusively direct or clinical practice. Our scale is small, enabling us to be a boutique clinical program, preparing students for employment in broad areas of health and human service practice.
We are a faculty of dedicated instructors and scholars, who are committed to your professional and occupational success.
