Leadership Practicum

Each student will have a leadership practicum in a social service agency or community organization. Students will take on a leadership project - for example, lead the development of a new policy, move a service initiative forward, or explore and provide recommendations about how a community need might be better met. Field instruction will be provided by a social worker who holds an MSW degree. Students’ experiences, observations and actions in the practicum setting will become topics for reflection in the accompanying seminar . The practicum will be 450 hours long (this number of hours is required for accreditation by the Canadian Association for Social Work Education).
