What research methods does the program support?

Upon application to the doctoral program, students must select one of three social work method concentrations, each of which has its own sequence of core-method courses:

  1. Advanced Practice: Prepares students for careers as practice researchers, teachers or other leadership tracks and wish to remain involved in practice and programming.
  2. Social Policy & Policy Analysis: Prepares students to teach and/or conduct research in the formulation of social policy or policy analysis.
  3. Social Policy & Administration: Prepares students for careers as researchers, academicians and leaders in the management and organization of social programs.
