Bachelor of arts in community development

The Bachelor of Arts in Community Development is a three-year interdisciplinary degree program that includes required courses in Community Economic & Social Development and Social Welfare. Community development practitioners work alongside people in communities to effect change. They

help communities identify common concerns and solutions and build relationships with organizations and those in positions of power so that everyone can become involved in issues that affect their lives. Community development practitioners often work within a defined geographic area (urban, rural, First Nation), or with specific groups including people with disabilities, youth, children and families, newcomers, the unemployed and/or the homeless. The program includes a 150-hour field placement that will link community development concepts, values, and theories to practice. Career paths for graduates include local, provincial, and federal government, notfor-profit and cooperative organizations, health and social service agencies, and many more!

The demand for social workers in Canada has risen significantly in recent years and is even greater in Northern Ontario as demand continues to outpace supply. Employment prospects for social workers are even stronger for those who are interested in working in rural areas and for those who possess cultural skills to work with First Nations’ communities. Algoma U’s HBSW credential was developed in consultation with local employers in Sault Ste. Marie and Timmins, many of whom have cited a growing need for employees with an HBSW. Career paths for graduates include Social Work, Social Services, (e.g. Counseling, Child Welfare, Addictions, Corrections), Community Development, Private Practice.
