Welcome!  Current students of the University of St. Thomas School of Social Work's Doctorate in Social Work program utilize the University of St. Thomas Canvas classroom management system.  Once enrolled in the program, students gain access to the DSW student orientation site, which contains all of the pertinent information for getting started in the program.  Students continue to use Canvas for all aspects of their course and program management resource requirements. 

This webpage provides some of the information that incoming students may wish to review before "Getting Started."
