|(3 cr.) The purpose of this course is to provide the MSW
student with a solid foundation in social work
research, emphasizing evidence-based practice.
As both consumers and producers of research,
social workers need to understand the core
concepts of scientifically sound and rigorous
research. Through mastery of the principles of
social work research, students are prepared to
critically evaluate the wealth of research and
evidence available to inform one's practice.
Students also learn to synthesize empirical
research into a systematic review of the
literature to address a social work practice
of personal interest.
