York's MSW graduate program takes an approach to research and teaching that places diversity of experience (due to race, class, ability, sexual orientation, age, gender, and religious/spiritual affiliation) as central to understanding how oppression, marginalization and assistance are constructed for persons in need of social work services.

York University's PhD in Social Work builds on the strengths and traditions of our undergraduate and graduate programs, while focusing on the conceptualization of the field of social work, its antecedents, theory and epistemology. Our program is distinguished by its critical approach to the field and its emphasis on human rights, social justice and anti-oppression.
