Our PhD Program balances theory-driven research based on strong methodological and analytic skills. We prepare students for exciting roles in which they will contribute to the development of knowledge in the field of social welfare and the profession of social work. Graduates are prepared to be productive researchers and skilled teachers in prominent schools of social work, and we offer competitive support for qualifying students.
We have two curriculum delivery strategies (onsite and distance) with the same program requirements, standards of rigor, and expectations for students. Designed for students to obtain their degree in three to five academic years, the first part of the program consists of core doctoral coursework followed by independent research culminating in the dissertation process.
Please feel free to contact our office with specific questions, as we always welcome an opportunity to talk with applicants and students.
