SW 701: Colloquium I


Colloquium I is designed to provide a foundation for doctoral study at the University of Mississippi Department of Social Work. The purpose of the course is to present issues in social work research, define standards for scholarly achievement, and prepare students for successful independent scholarship. Students are expected to use the information provided in this course to clarify their long-term scholarly goals and to develop an educational plan to achieve them. Colloquium I exposes doctoral students to social science research knowledge and skills by reading and analyzing social science and social work research, framing researchable questions, and evaluating and critiquing research methodology in published empirical studies. This course will prepare students for Colloquium II, as well as prepare them for their professional roles in conducting, analyzing, and/or evaluating social work research dedicated to closing the gap between the demands of the social work practice world and the limited empirical bases for responding to critical social welfare issues.
