About

The Social Work Professional Doctorate (PrDoc) at the University of New South Wales is a postgraduate research degree available for social workers. It provides the opportunity to combine postgraduate coursework study directly related to an area of advanced social work practice with doctoral research that builds social work knowledge, leading to the presentation of a doctoral thesis.  

Overview

Advanced professional practice in the discipline of social work involves the continuous development of knowledge for practice. Leadership in social work requires experience, in-depth advanced practice study and sophisticated research skills.

The programme  

In this Social Work Professional Doctorate (PrDoc) at the University of New South Wales , in-depth advanced practice study is achieved in the specialised coursework component, which builds on foundational social work education and the experience gained through professional practice. 

This advanced practice study provides the basis for a contribution to social work knowledge through empirical or conceptual research. The thesis study component of the program develops the sophisticated research skills necessary for an original and significant contribution to social work knowledge. 

The Social Work (PrDoc) program as a whole prepares experienced practitioners for research and practice leadership in the discipline of social work.

Graduates of this program will have:

  • a substantial body of knowledge in one area of advanced social work practice, including knowledge generated through their own original research
  • substantial knowledge of research principles applicable to a selected field of advanced social work practice.
