Indigenous Bachelor of Social Work
Yellowhead Tribal College Edmontonytced.ab.ca
As a member of the First Nations Adult and Higher Education Consortium (FNAHEC), Yellowhead Tribal College plans to deliver an Indigenous Bachelor of Social Work degree that applies Indigenous knowledge and pedagogies to social work practice. Graduates of this program qualify for employment in all areas of social work provincially, nationally, and internationally.
Mode of Delivery
The YTC IBSW program is a full-time program delivered through the learning circle model. Courses will be delivered Friday evenings from 5 pm - 9 pm and all day Saturdays from 8 am - 5 pm. This mode of delivery will allow both employed and full-time funded students to complete the program.
Program Type Bachelor's
Credential Type Degree
Length 4 Years
2 years (3rd and 4th year of IBSW degree)
- Part Time Only
- Cooperative Education
- Continuing Education

Applicants will possess an accredited diploma in Social Work; a diploma in Indigenous Social Work is preferred.
Applicants with a non-Indigenous Social Work Diploma must have a strong Indigenous foundation in their practice, or have undertaken other non-social work courses or degrees.
Because the Indigenous Bachelor of Social Work is cohort-based, we admit a group of students only once every two years.
