About

The purpose of the Social Welfare program of the Case Western Reserve University is the preparation of scholars, teachers, and leaders to generate new knowledge on the policies and programs of social welfare and the practice of social work.

Overview

About the Program

Accordingly, we emphasize the creative and evaluative skills necessary for independent inquiry. The Social Welfare program of the Case Western Reserve University prepares students to be knowledgeable in the following:

  • Relevant areas of the social and behavioral sciences
  • Research design, statistics, qualitative methods, mixed methods, and the philosophy of science
  • Theory-building and theories of social welfare
  • Methods for the application and transmission of knowledge in the human services

The program core emphasizes philosophical and scientific approaches to theory development, the content and boundaries of theoretical social welfare, statistics, and advanced research methodologies, and the social and behavioral science foundations underpinning social welfare programs and social work practice.

The area of specialization enables the student to apply social science theory, analytical approaches, and research tools to a social problem or issue in social work. Students are encouraged to focus on a substantive social problem during the period of specialization. This facilitates the development of a dissertation proposal. Permeating the content of the entire program is a focus on the development and transmission of knowledge as a part of an educational process.

To prepare students for academic careers in social work education is an integral part of the educational plan. Teaching mentorships and classroom teaching experiences are available.

Students can pursue special interests through individual reading and research projects. In addition, regular course offerings in other departments of the university are available to students. Practical experiences in faculty-conducted research projects are made available to doctoral students.

  • Philosophy of Science and Theory Building
