"When I entered the Social Work Diploma program at Mount Royal in 1998, I could not have imagined the immense life change that was bout to take place. The program challenged my beliefs, understandings and view of the work, giving me the invaluable opportunity to grow both on a personal and professional level. I was taught a wide range of theory, ethics, and key social issues related to the field. The instructors who so capably dispensed theoretical and practical insights were also more than willing to offer additional assistance and always treated students with respect and equality. As I now embark on obtaining my Master of Social Work degree, I look back on my educational experience at Mount Royal as a turning point in my life that provided me with a solid foundation in achieving my scholastic and career aspirations."
