Full-time and part-time study is available in the BSW degree.
The BSW program is offered on the main campus of NVIT, both at the Merritt campus and the Burnaby campus.
Students enter the program in the fall semester. Most courses are offered in the Fall and Winter semesters, with some summer course offerings.
Completion of the BSW degree requires that students successfully complete 120 academic credits of university coursework.
Two social work practica (SOCW 304 and SOCW 402) are required to complete the BSW degree
The development of a suitable practicum placement is a collaborative effort between the instructor, student and the agency. It is expected that students will undertake two very different practica to offer the widest possible range of social work experience.
Students must successfully pass a criminal record check in order to complete a practicum.
NVIT places students in a wide variety of practicum settings in the Interior and Lower Mainland regions. These placements include both urban and rural Aboriginal agencies, as well as government, community, and residential resources. The Bachelor of Social Work program offers practicum placements in many different service areas including child and youth care work, mental health, clinical care, probation services, non-profit and profit agencies, contracted services, multicultural agencies, local Aboriginal organizations and government ministries
