SW 505 - Social Work Research
(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 issue of personal interest. Every Year, Fall
