Calgary Region

Our Calgary campus is housed in the Professional Faculties building and offers undergraduate and graduate social work education, including our PhD program. Take a tour through the Why UCalgary page to learn more about our fabulous campus and city communities.

Central and Northern Alberta Region

The faculty’s Central and Northern Alberta region is based in Edmonton and offers undergraduate and graduate education to students in central and northern Alberta. Edmonton is Alberta’s capital city and a vibrant urban centre in the heart of the wilderness, with a population of about a million people and an outstanding quality of life. The city has a lively social scene, and the Edmonton River Valley, which stretches through the heart of the city, is a perfect place to enjoy the outdoors. Known for its diverse multiculturalism, and warm, friendly people, Edmonton is located only a few hours drive from the majestic Banff and Jasper National Parks, which offer skiing in winter and excellent hiking and sightseeing in summer. Here are a few useful websites to check out:

Southern Alberta Region

Our Southern Alberta region calls Lethbridge home and serves undergraduate and graduate students living south of Calgary. In southwest Alberta, all roads lead to Lethbridge – a mid-sized city of about 90,000 people close to the Canadian Rockies, awe-inspiring national parks and the U.S. border.  Residents enjoy a high quality of life in family-oriented neighbourhoods with more than 70 parks and 140 kilometres of walking trails throughout the city. With an average of 320 days of sunshine per year and one of the warmest winters in the western province, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy all that the city and region have to offer.
