The Indigenous Social Work Diploma program prepares students for social work practice founded on Indigenous knowledge along with examination of Western concepts and approaches.
The Indigenous Social Work Diploma is a dynamic, culturally informed program that focuses on Indigenous Knowledge as a form of de-colonization and empowerment. Students are immersed in cultural teachings and discovery while learning the main pillars of social work practice. The program offers courses in Indigenous Language, Natural Helping systems, decolonization, and cultural practice.
