Degree Requirements

The BSW is a 20 credit degree program and is offered on campus and by distance delivery online. Both delivery methods include field placement experience. The five admission credits that form the basic BSW academic prerequisite reduces the 20 degree requirement to 15 credits for all students.

Distance students are required to take SLWK 2335, Beginning Social Work Practice onsite at Dalhousie University. The course is a combination of online study with a two week onsite residency component. This course is scheduled in the Spring session, normally in early May. Students complete this requirement in their 1st year of study.
