30.5 Course Format

To increase accessibility for students in remote and rural areas, we offer courses in the following formats:

  1. SCWK 6012, 6013, 6014, and 6413 are online courses.

  2. SCWK 6314, 6315, 6316, and 6317 are online courses with a mandatory on-campus institute component consisting of 36 hours of classroom instruction. Course materials and activities for the pre-institute and post-institute components of the courses are available online for students. Students must be available on a full-time basis to attend classes and complete assignments and group projects during the institute portion of these courses. It is recommended that students take leave from their employment for the duration of an on-campus institute, which may be scheduled in a combination of weekday, evening, and weekend hours within a two-week time period. The final decision regarding the on-campus institute schedule rests with the School of Social Work.

  3. SCWK 6917 can be completed in St. John's, or in a student's home community, where appropriate supervision is available.

  4. SCWK 6000 and 6417 can be completed in St. John’s or in a student’s home community.

  5. In exceptional circumstances, and contingent upon student numbers and school resources, additional course sections may be offered in a regular classroom format.
