Diploma In Indigenous Social Work

The Indigenous Social Work Diploma Program at Maskwacis Cultural College is designed to
graduate social work practitioners who have developed a model of practice that is
founded upon Indigenous values, knowledge, and philosophy. Guided by this Indigenous
foundation, students learn how to establish respectful relationships with Nations,
communities, families, and individuals. As students explore Cree culture and Cree language,
they are educated about Indigenous healing practices and their supporting theories. From
this Indigenous foundation students explore the development of Western social work theory
and practice.

The Indigenous Social Work Diploma Program is a 20 month program, two 10 month
academic years.
