Year 1 of the 2-Year MSW Full-Time Program – Fall 2020 and Winter 2021

(Last updated November 2, 2020: Mode of online course delivery for Winter 2021)

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

Our policy is that after the first week of classes the first year sections are set. We do not allow switches unless there are major extenuating circumstances.

Lunch & Meetings (Fall & Winter Terms)   M 12-1:30
GSA Activities (Fall & Winter Terms)          T 12-1:30


Ontario’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve. Changes will likely occur as the province and its municipalities adjust to new data about the virus. In these circumstances, please be advised that the manner of delivery of courses, co-curricular opportunities, programs, and services is subject to change, in accordance with university policies. The University thanks its students, faculty, and staff for their flexibility during these challenging times as we work together to maintain the standards of excellence that are the hallmark of the University.
