Career Possibilities

Our Ph.D. program prepares students for leading roles in areas such as social work education, social welfare, policy analysis and development, administration, social work practice, and advocacy. While our program stresses research, many of our students continue to practice or teach as well. 

  • Doctoral graduates in social work are very much in demand for teaching in many of the almost 500 BSW and MSW programs in the country. 
  • Graduates often continue to pursue professional funded research in a variety settings. 
  • Consultation is also an area where our graduates thrive!
