People interested in applying for the University of Manitoba’s Northern Social Work Program have until March 1st to do so.
The program can be completed anywhere between four to nine years, which program director Lee Anne Deegan says provides flexibility for students who’re working or have families.
Deegan adds jobs pertaining to social work will continue to be in demand, saying many of their graduates stay in the north as they pursue their careers.
She cites 460 people have graduated from the program since 1988, meaning around ten to 15 students graduate from the program in a given year.
