About the courseThe Bachelor of Social Work program at Nipissing University is committed to preparing students for generalist social work practice that is characterized by high ethical standards, critical thinking, creativity, research-mindedness and the promotion of human rights, inclusion and equality. The principles of anti-oppressive practice underpin our program’s particular emphasis on social work with diverse identities in northern, rural and remote contexts including Indigenous and Franco-Ontarian communities. Through a blend of classical and innovative teaching approaches we are dedicated to establishing a positive climate for learning through supportive interaction, integrity, personal growth and creative expression. Our integration of classroom and experiential learning values the development of core competencies for relationship-based social work with individuals, families and groups and for structural approaches to effect positive social change to build communities where everyone thrives.

AboutFounded in 1967, Nipissing University was formed as an affiliate of Laurentian University. It is situated in North Bat, Ontario, Canada, and is renowned for its small class size, having innovative and supportive staff and giving immense research opportunities to students. In 1992, the university started functioning as an independent university to grant baccalaureate degrees to its students. In 2001, a bill was passed by the Government of Ontario to revise the universitys charter to permit it to grant graduate degrees. The North Bay Teachers College was incorporated into Nipissing College as the Faculty of Education.
Nipissing University is well known for its excellence in the field of art, science and teacher education. The environment is student-focused with the emphasis being laid on personal teaching methodologies and innovative ways of teaching. It has created a positive impact on the students’ cultural, economic and social life. Students not only learn academics but also learn to develop social and professional skills. The education system is such that they enable students to think independently and work on problem-solving skills.
