Join us at Laurier

Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Laurier’s Lyle S. Hallman Faculty of Social Work has an international reputation for excellence in teaching, research and field education. Our programs are ideally located in the heart of downtown Kitchener and Brantford, Ontario – embedding our students close to the social service agencies with which they work.

We offer social work programs at the bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral levels. Our newest Bachelor of Social Work program, located at Laurier’s Brantford campus, offers a generalist degree with a unique focus on Aboriginal issues.

Located in the historic St. Jerome’s College building and home to our MSW and PhD programs, the Faculty of Social Work’s Kitchener location is a 40,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility, housing seven classrooms (including a unique circular classroom for our Aboriginal Field of Study), computer lab, a 2,000 square foot library, interview-viewing room, a large conference/lecture hall, community meeting space, student lounge and spiritual room.
