IX. Degree Programs

Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc.) - Major Family and Community Social Services - Social Service Worker Diploma

The Family and Community Social Services program is designed for students who want to help individuals, families and communities to overcome the issues and concerns in their lives. The students who have chosen this program indicate a desire for careers (and graduate level study) in the areas of social work, family therapy, community development, counselling, family law, mediation and agency administration. Our program offers an ideal combination of theory and experiential learning to provide students the necessary background to enter the workforce in the social services sector or for admission to graduate and professional programs of study.

All graduates will be prepared for membership in the Ontario College of Social Workers & Social Service Workers.

Students are required to complete 18.5 core family and community social service credits, and 1.5 general elective credits in order to be eligible for graduation. Students must complete these requirements in order to be eligible to graduate with both the university honours degree (awarded by the University of Guelph) and the college diploma (awarded by Humber). No option exists to graduate with only one of the above listed credentials as the program is fully integrated.
