Since its inception in 1966, the Lyle S. Hallman Faculty of Social Work (FSW) has developed a national and international reputation for excellence in teaching, research, and practicum instruction. The FSW offers social work programs at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels.  The BSW program, located at Laurier's Brantford campus, offers a generalist BSW with a unique focus on Aboriginal issues.  The MSW program has an overarching framework of social justice, equity, inclusivity and relexivity and provides students flexibility in choosing the direction of their learning in micro and/or macro social work practice. more
