“The Bachelor of Social Work program provided me with the skills necessary to work in the helping profession and was instrumental in providing the tools required to launch my career. It also prepared me to think critically and to authentically engage and build rapport with the clients I work with. The professors were all professionally engaged in their areas of expertise and the practice field. They were able to provide pathways to success for students and to empower them with confidence in their learning and practice. I cannot say enough amazing things about VIU and the BSW program.”
