Program Information
Faculty: School of Social Work
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Social Work
Description The Master of Social Work program is based on an analytical and critical approach to social work practice, and to knowledge related to practice. The program examines the structural context of personal and social problems and of social work practice itself. The structural context refers to the interaction between individuals and the social, political, and economic dimensions of society. The program focuses on the development of social work practices that change the interactions between people and structural contexts. The curriculum is organized into two concentrations: Direct Intervention: with individuals, families, small groups, and communities; and Social Administration and Policy: an examination of the political, economic, and social context within which social policy is made.
