Our MBA/MSW program teaches students to apply managerial and economic principles to social work practice. It's how our graduates lead highly effective service agencies and create new programs and policies. This collaborative program between the School of Management and the School of Social Work leads to both an MBA and MSW and reduces the time and credits compared to completing the programs separately.
This course is a general introduction to the theory and practice of social research, particularly to the application of the scientific method to social work practice. This course as designed has a two-fold focus: (1) to give students a working knowledge of issues and techniques of measurement in empirical research and (2) to acquaint them with commonly used research designs and their underlying logical rationales.
