SOWK7645: Practical Social Work Research

Class Program
Credits 3
This course is designed to build upon basic research concepts and enhance the ability of students to conduct research as would be common in MSW practice. Students will receive instruction on practice-oriented research methods and develop basic projects using single-case designs and program evaluation models. It is imperative that MSW-level practitioners understand the benefits and challenges of an evidence-based practice focus and how to interpret existing research. Students will be expected to select a problem area to study and conduct an extensive literature review or meta-analysis related to that problem.
