Redeemer, Dordt partner to create pathway for social work students


Redeemer University and Dordt University in the United States have developed a pathway for students interested in a social work career. Graduates of Redeemer’s applied social sciences program can fast-track their progression in Dordt’s online Master of Social Work (MSW) program by having select courses waived. “[Dordt’s] online format provides a highly flexible platform that allows students to tailor the program to their own situations,” said Redeemer Professor of Social Work Dr James Vanderwoerd. “[T]he US-based accreditation is recognized in Canada; and [“¦] it offers one of the only opportunities to pursue an MSW based on the Reformed tradition that Redeemer and Dordt share.”
