Distance Education

The School of Social Work offers both the Bachelor’s of Social Work (BSW) and Master’s of Social Work (MSW) degrees through online distance delivery. Studying by distance offers students an opportunity to study in their home community with the ability to continue to work and participate in family and community life. Our programs are CASWE accredited and nationally recognized. 

It is important to note that these programs are open only to residents of Canada (citizens or permanent residents) who are currently living in Canada.

The BSW and MSW programs by distance offer a rich and highly interactive learning environment. Students in our programs live in communities across Canada, bringing a diversity of perspective and experience to the online classes. You will be required to actively engage in course content online through a variety of course tools, including discussion boards, chat, and other interactive media. The BSW and MSW program courses are offered through Brightspace, an Internet-based learning management system. Learn more about Brightspace at the School of Social Work.

The School of Social Work assists students and faculty in the online environment. If you have questions regarding distance delivery of either the BSW or MSW programs, please contact sswde@dal.ca.
