The School of Social Work at King’s University College, affiliated with Western University, offers a Direct Practice Master of Social Work (MSW) program on a full-time basis. The program is course-based with an advanced practicum (450+ hours in each year of the program). Students are admitted to the program each September.

Social work is concerned with individual and personal problems but also with broader social issues such as poverty, unemployment, discrimination, and domestic violence.

Human rights and social justice are the philosophical underpinnings of social work practice. The uniqueness of social work practice is in the blend of particular values, knowledge and skills, including the use of relationship as the basis of all interventions, counselling, and respect for the client’s choice and involvement. Our program provides advanced education for social work practice with individuals, families, groups and communities.

The M.A. program in Communication and Social Justice offers students a unique opportunity to pursue media studies in an environment conducive to addressing social justice issues. Read more
The M.A. program in Communication and Social Justice offers students a unique opportunity to pursue media studies in an environment conducive to addressing social justice issues. In particular, the M.A. in Communication and Social Justice bridges two main approaches to the study of communications, media and culture—namely, Political Economy and Critical Cultural Studies.

The political economy of communication typically concerns itself with how policies, regulations, technologies, media institutions, laws, and concentrations of wealth and power affect the media, and conversely the ways in which this affects social, political and economic power structures. Critical Cultural Studies has emerged as an area that focuses on cultural practices, representation in media texts, cultural production and consumption.

Taken together, these two approaches complement and inform one another impacting the interpretation of everyday communicative and symbolic environments.

Through advanced course work and research, the M.A. program will:
-Prepare students for careers in information/communication sectors such as: community-based public advocacy organizations, governmental and non-governmental organizations, communication policy analysis, media research, journalism and multimedia
-Prepare students to better understand and critically appraise the evolving social, cultural, political and technological environment
-Prepare students for entry into PhD programs in Communication and cognate fields

Program History

Established in 2002, the MA Program in Communication and Social Justice is a unique, student-centered program which offers individuals a distinctive opportunity to pursue their scholarly interests in a vibrant, diverse, and supportive environment. The program promotes innovative and original thinking, research, and practice.

Over the years, the program has attracted the interest of students from many parts of the globe—including Canada, the Caribbean, China, India, Mexico, Thailand, Venezuela and the United States. Such diversity has contributed to the rich tapestry of graduate student culture and research undertaken by former and current students.

Students in the program have presented their work at major international conferences on a wide variety of topics. Several have also been recipients of prestigious scholarships awarded by the Ontario Graduate Scholarship Program and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Graduates of the program have gone on to pursue doctoral studies, teaching and law careers, and employment opportunities in the public and private sectors as well as in alternative media.

The proportion of Seniors is accelerating rapidly, and Seniors are expected to account for nearly one-quarter of British Columbia’s population by 2036. Read more

The proportion of Seniors is accelerating rapidly, and Seniors are expected to account for nearly one-quarter of British Columbia’s population by 2036. Currently nearly 15 per cent of the population older than 85 resides in a public or private care facility. While many services are provided in the public sector there is an increasing number and range of services for Seniors in the private and non-profit sectors as well. These demographic trends highlight the pressing need for health professionals with sector-relevant and cross-disciplinary technical skills who can create the future of Seniors care in community and institutional contexts.

The Master of Health Leadership and Policy (MHLP) in Seniors Care is an intensive one-year degree program that equips you with the skills needed to improve patient outcomes and help create the future of Seniors health care. The project-based curriculum follows the industry value chain, maintaining a strong focus on organizational models of practice that promote ethical, equitable and socially sustainable policies and practices in Seniors care. While 60 per cent of your classes will focus on your technical specialization, the remaining 40 per cent are leadership development courses that will enhance your business, communication and people skills. Delivery of the management and leadership courses are in partnership with UBC's Sauder School of Business.

What Makes The Program Unique?

The MHLP in Seniors Care is a unique graduate program that empowers you to develop the sector-relevant cross-disciplinary technical skills that are acutely needed in this field. No other Canadian institution currently offers sector-focused (rather than research-oriented) training at the graduate level. It has been developed in close collaboration with public and private sector partners, who told us they are challenged to find people with the cross-functional technical and leadership skills needed to develop innovative solutions, manage collaborative teams and lead projects.

To complement your academic studies, professional development workshops, delivered by industry leaders, are offered throughout the year-long program. These extra-curricular sessions cover a range of topics such as:

-Leadership fundamentals

-Giving and receiving feedback

-Learning how to deliver a successful pitch

-Effective presenting

The workshops also provide opportunities to network with professionals from a wide range of industries, UBC faculty and students in the MHLP and MEL programs.

Career Options

Our graduates will be in high demand in the private and public sector. Job opportunities could include conceptualizing and leading Seniors-focused clinical programs, leading and managing services for Seniors in a range of settings, as well as proposing or analyzing policy initiatives tor Seniors care.

Residency
Students can expect the residency period to be quite rigorous. The normal schedule for a residency is from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Homework, readings and team assignments are completed outside of these hours so it is recommended that students keep their evenings available for these activities.

Online Learning
The online portion of the program involves several information delivery methods, including textbooks, articles, case studies, interactive learning and "chat" bulletin boards for corresponding. Courses involve assignments and teamwork, requiring students to plan carefully to meet timelines.

The two online courses last for a period of 10 weeks each, and require a level of effort of approximately 20 hours per week. During the first online course, the amount of time required may be higher as students familiarize themselves with our online learning platform.
