4 YORK UNIVERSITY FACULTY OF LIBERAL ARTS AND PROFESSIONAL STUDIES SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK The School of Social Work is recognized as having one of the most progressive and socially responsive social work programs in Canada. There are two streams in the BSW Honours degree program: 1) The first is the Direct Entry stream, which can be completed within four years if students enter in the first year of University or three years if students enter in the second year. To complete in this time frame, students will need 30 credits per year (including one summer term). 2) The second is the Post Degree stream. These students have five years to complete their degree, but can complete in a shorter period of time, depending on credits taken. Both of these BSW options are accredited by the Canadian Association of Schools of Social Work. The school also offers a full time and part time graduate MSW program. The School uses a curriculum that was designed with the collaboration of professors, students, field instructors and community representatives. In this way, the School's programs respond to the real needs of social workers in the context of dramatically changing global realities. Students in the School receive a professional social work education that is characterized by a commitment to human rights and social justice. Dedicated instructors, who draw from a strong contemporary curriculum and their own practical experience, afford students the opportunity to acquire their own practical skills skills that will enable them to help individuals, families and communities.

5 Mission Statement: York University The mission of York University is the pursuit, preservation and dissemination of knowledge. We promise excellence in research and teaching in pure, applied and professional fields. We test the boundaries and structure of knowledge. We cultivate the critical intellect. York University is part of Toronto: we are dynamic, metropolitan and multicultural. York University is part of Canada: we encourage bilingual study, we value tolerance and diversity. York University is open to the world: we explore global concerns. A community of faculty, students and staff committed to academic freedom, social justice, accessible education and collegial self governance, York University makes it innovation its tradition. Mission Statement: School of Social Work The School of Social Work, York University, is committed to social work education which develops practice strategies for human rights and social justice and thus affirms that personal experiences are embedded in social structures. Through research, curriculum, and critical pedagogy the School will: o address oppression and subordination as experienced and mediated through class, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, and ability; o develop a critical appreciation of the social construction of reality; o promote an understanding of how values and ideologies construct social problems and how they construct responses; o prepare students to be critical practitioners and agents of change. 5

6 IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR For , the School of Social Work has launched a new course Introduction to Critical Social, SOWK For the school year this new course (SOWK 1011) runs alongside SOWK 1010 and SOWK 2000, and is designated as a course credit exclusion for SOWK 1010 and SOWK In , SOWK1011 will replace SOWK 1010 and SOWK 2000 and both of these courses will no longer be offered. A second change to our program for is that ALL SOCIAL WORK STUDENTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO FILL OUT A SUPPLEMENTARY APPLICATION to remain in and be accepted into the program. In the past Direct Entry students from Community College, Transfer, and Mature students and Post-Degree students filled out supplementary application forms to be successfully admitted into the program this remains the same. As of , students accepted directly from secondary school will also submit a supplementary application during the first year of their program in order to progress into second year please see below. Direct Entry from Secondary School and Progression to Second Year: Students will be initially admitted into the BSW program from secondary school. After the completion of at least 18 credits and SOWK 1011, students must submit a supplementary application form. Progression to second year will be based on GPA (below a B (6.00) will not normally be considered for progression), as well as an evaluation of the supplementary application. Students should be aware that spaces in the second year BSW program are limited, and that not all students who pass SOWK 1011 will be invited to continue in the program. Direct Entry from Community College (in related fields): Applicants will complete a supplementary application to be admitted into the program. Those who are successfully admitted will have their previous studies evaluated, and will normally be granted some transfer credits, plus credit for SOWK Applicants with a grade point average of under a B will normally not be considered for acceptance. Direct Entry Students (transfer students, college students from an unrelated field or mature students): Students who successfully complete the supplementary application form and are admitted into the BSW program will be required to take SOWK1011, concurrently with the second year BSW courses (ie. SOWK2030, SOWK2050). Applicants with a grade point average of under a B will normally not be considered for acceptance. 6

7 York University BSW Student Professional Behaviour Policy The Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree is an important determinant of eligibility for registration with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers. Given the professional trajectory of the BSW degree, a professional standard of behaviour is expected from social work students. At issue in this policy is the protection of the public and the University s role in graduating competent professionals. Progression through the BSW program at the School of Social Work at York University is contingent on students behaviour meeting the ethical and behavioural standards set forth in the Canadian Association of Social Workers Code of Ethics (CASW) 1, the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers Standards of Practice 2 ; the York University Student Code of Conduct, and other relevant York University policies 3 including but not limited to the Sexual Harassment Policy and the Policy Concerning Racism. This policy recognizes the general responsibility of the faculty members of the School of Social Work to foster acceptable standards of professional behaviour and of the student to be mindful of and abide by such standards. A. Behaviour that may result in withdrawal from the BSW program A student may be withdrawn from the BSW program if he or she: 1. commits any breach of the CASW Code of Ethics, the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers Standards of Practice, and/or any York University Policy that relates to student behaviour, such as the York University Student Code of Conduct or the Senate Policy on Academic Honesty that would engage the behavioural and ethical standards of the profession; 2. engages in any proscribed behaviour in a practicum agency as detailed in the School of Social Work s Practicum Manual; 3. acquires a criminal conviction after being admitted to the program (or which was acquired prior to admission but became known only after having been admitted to the program) which jeopardizes the student s ability to gain registration as a social worker; or 4. engages in behaviour that impairs the performance of professional responsibilities. B. Jurisdiction Allegations of a breach of professional behavioural or ethical standards by a student enrolled in the BSW degree program offered by the School of Social Work, York University shall be dealt with by the School of Social Work, York University in accordance with the procedures outlined below for a complete list see 7

8 C. Procedures for determination of whether a Student Profession Behaviour Review is necessary 1. Any breach of professional behaviour that is deemed so serious that it may warrant requiring a student to withdraw from the program will initiate a Student Professional Behaviour Review. 2. Non Practicum Courses: In instances where a Course Director of a non practicum social work course has concerns about student behaviour that have not been resolved through discussion with the student, he or she will consult with the Undergraduate Program Director. The Undergraduate Program Director, the Course Director and the student will normally meet to discuss the concerns in the hopes of determining a resolution. If no resolution is achieved or if conditions agreed to by the student as part of the resolution were not fulfilled the matter shall be referred for a Student Professional Behaviour Review. 3. Practicum Courses: In the event that a Faculty Advisor or the Field Coordinator has concerns about the behaviour of a student enrolled in SOWK or SOWK (Practicum in Social Work I and II), he/she will follow policies detailed in the School of Social Work s Practicum Manual. Where the matter concerns the possible outcome of denying the student an opportunity to complete the practicum requirement, the matter shall be referred for a Student Professional Behaviour Review. 4. When allegations of a breach of professional behaviour standards by a student enrolled in the BSW program are reported to have occurred in a venue other than a BSW course or practicum, the matter will be investigated by the Undergraduate Program Director or designate. Normally this investigation will include meeting with the student to discuss the allegation in the hopes of determining a resolution. If no resolution is achieved or if conditions agreed to by the student are not fulfilled the matter shall be referred for a Student Professional Behaviour Review. D. Student Professional Behaviour Review 1. Once notified of a potential breach of professional behaviour standards by a student in the BSW Honours degree program, the designated Faculty office shall post a block on enrolment activity in the concerned course or courses. The student may not drop or be deregistered from the course for any reason, nor withdraw from the University, nor may transcripts be released to the student until a final decision is reached. 2. The Undergraduate Program Director of the School or his/her designate convenes a review committee consisting of three members. The review committee will consist of the Associate Dean of Students of the Faculty, or his/her designate; the Director of the School of Social Work; and one other member of the BSW Program who has not been privy to the allegations. The Undergraduate Program Director of the School or his/her designate, the Director of Field Education for the School or his/her designate, Course Directors of courses in which the student s behaviour has become an issue, Field Instructors where the behaviour occurred in a practicum setting and other representatives of the professional may be called to serve as witnesses. When the alleged breach of professional or ethical standards occurs in a noncourse or practicum setting, other persons may be called to appear as witnesses. 3. The student will be notified in writing by e mail and by priority commercial post of the intention to hold a Student Professional Behaviour Review and provided with suggested times 8

9 and dates. It is the student s responsibility to provide the School with current e mail, postal and telephone contact information. Failure to do so may result in shorter or no notice being received. In such a case the Review may take place without the student. The letter notifying the student of the Review shall include a summary of the alleged breach of professional standards and an outline of the procedures to be followed at a Student Professional Behaviour Review. If the student wishes to file a written response to the allegation, it must be received within fourteen calendar days of the date on which the notification of the Review was sent to the student. All parties are required to inform the Review Committee of their intention to call witnesses and the names of these witnesses at least seven calendar days prior to the Review. 4. The student has seven days to respond so as to fix the time and date for the meeting. If the student does not respond in a timely way, the Review may take place without the student. 5. The student may be accompanied by a representative. In such a case, the representative s name and relationship to the student must be provided to the Director in advance of the Review. 6. The Director or designate chairs the Review and a School staff person takes notes. The representatives of the School first present their concerns. If witnesses are present they are called to present their information concerning the alleged behaviour of the student. The student is then given an opportunity to ask questions about the concerns and evidence presented and to respond to them. Finally, the representatives of the School have an opportunity to comment on any issues or information that has been presented by the student. The Review Committee is not bound by formal rules of evidence applicable in courts of law. When all available relevant evidence and witnesses have been heard and both the School and student have had opportunity to provide comment, the Review Committee shall then enter into a closed session to determine whether a breach of professional standards or ethics has occurred and, if so, what actions will be taken. The decision is made by a majority vote of the review committee. 8. A Student Professional Behaviour Review will result in one of four outcomes: i) A finding that no breach of professional standards or ethics has occurred. No records will be retained. ii) A finding that a breach of professional standards or ethics has occurred but it is determined that no action other than remedial educative measures will be taken; iii) A finding that a breach of professional standards or ethics has occurred that warrants the imposition of conditions on the student as a requirement for continuation in the program. iv) A finding that a breach of professional or ethical standards has occurred that warrants either or both assigning a grade of F in the course and withdrawal of the student from the BSW Honours degree program. 9. The decision of the committee shall be communicated to the student in writing, delivered by hand or by mail. A record of the decision will be retained in the Office of the Director of the School of Social Work, regardless of the severity of the penalty, and be held for a time consistent with the University s records retention guidelines. This record is for internal academic purposes only. A note shall be placed on the Student Information System to bar withdrawal from the course. 9

Credits are applied against any amount owing on your account. Refunds are issued only when all charges outstanding on your account have been cleared. Feb. 25 onward 2. Fee withheld refers to the amount of fees retained by the University when you drop a course during the specified time frame. You are responsible for this amount, whether or not the fees have been paid. Do not confuse the academic withdrawal/drop dates with the refund table dates as they are different. Dropping or changing courses may cost money. Note that you can exchange a course you are in for a different course. Using the feature to exchange a course performs the course add and course drop for you in one step. If you are not able to get into the second course successfully, e.g. it is full, you will still remain enrolled in the first course. If you are successful, the first course will be dropped. Because a successful exchange performs a course drop, exchanging a course may have a financial impact. Please refer to the table above for the term in which you have enrolled to see what the financial impact will be. Associated Course Fees: Additional fees for course materials, lab fees etc. may be charged in individual courses. Visit the York University Courses Web site or with the appropriate academic department or unit for information about such fees. 12

It is NOT a substitute for the calendar. Degree and program requirements are subject to change. Every effort has been made to ensure that the study plan checklist and the York Undergraduate Calendar reflect the most recent changes. There may be instances when what is published does not reflect the most current University policy. In such instances, when the published versions of policies or regulations differ from what has been most recently approved by Senate, the latter will prevail. It is the responsibility of the student to take the correct courses and ensure ALL degree and program requirements are met. General education requirements: 24 credits in accordance with the following to be completed at the 1000 level: six credits Humanities; six credits Natural Science; six credits Social Science and six credits AK Mathematics or Modes or Reasoning. Some programs require MATH as a general education requirement. Please refer to your program of study. General education courses DO NOT fulfill major or the degree requirement of courses required outside the major. No more than 30 general education credits will count towards a degree. (Exception: students who have successfully completed a nine credit 1000 level foundation course will be considered to have satisfied the six credit corresponding area of study in general education and three credits will count toward nonmajor or free choice courses.) OR 24 credits in accordance with the Faculty of Arts General Education requirements: 9 credits at the 1000 level Social Science or Humanities; 6 credits 1000 level Natural Science and 9 credits at the 2000 level Social Science or Humanities.
