MSW Year 2 and MSW Advanced Standing – Fall 2020 and Winter 2021

(Last updated July 31, 2020)

Fall courses will in all likelihood be delivered through remote/online formats this coming Fall. The following timetable indicates the planned mode of online course delivery using the following codes:

FA: Fully asynchronous (course has no scheduled virtual class time slot as it is completely web-based).

S: Fully synchronous or a mixture of synchronous/asynchronous (course has a scheduled virtual class time slot that will include at least some live virtual class time over an online meeting platform).


All required courses in each MSW Field of Study are offered each year, although the semester in which a given course is offered may vary from year to year. Individual elective courses are offered based on instructor availability and may not be offered each year. 

All courses are subject to sufficient enrollment. Click on Course Number for Course Description. Click on Instructor for Instructor’s Bio.

Field of Study required courses are colour coded on timetable. Students may take a required course from a different field of study as an elective, if there is room in the course after students in the field of study have selected courses.
