Collaborative Study in Social Service Worker

This program is designed for those who want a career in social services and front-line counselling.  It is available to Psychology majors who maintain a 70% average in their studies.

About the program
Brock University and Durham College have teamed up to develop the Collaborative Social Service Worker program. In just four years, students in the program earn both a twenty-credit BA degree from Brock University and a Social Service Worker diploma from Durham College. Upon graduation, students are eligible to be licensed as Social Service Workers through the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers.

Possible career areas include:

  • individual and community issues of homelessness
  • poverty
  • substance abuse
  • mental health concerns
  • oppression
  • crisis
  • other determinants of health and areas of social justice

Students apply to the collaborative program at the end of their first successful year of study at Brock. A minimum 70% average is required to be considered for admission, but please note that reaching this minimum does not guarantee acceptance.
