About

The primary objective of the MSW at McMaster University: Critical Analysis of Social Work is to provide opportunities for students to develop knowledge and skills necessary for the critical analysis of social work, and to examine the challenges and possibilities of working toward more inclusive and just policies and practices in the future.

Overview

Its goal is to prepare students for advanced practice in the critical analysis of social work. This stream in the Master of Social Work program, at the McMaster University, fosters in students new ways of understanding social work and its structuring, and possibilities for re-orienting their thinking and practice, in pursuit of a justice agenda.

Key Features 

  • Specifically, the program supports students’ development of conceptual, theoretical and analytical skills in relation to social work practices and social policies; an appreciation of the entanglement of fact and value, of material and discursive framings of social problems and the conceptualization and implementation of responses to them; the ability to apply these skills and modes of understanding to substantive areas of interest and in their research practice; and  the capacity to move from analysis of social work/social welfare issues or problems to consideration of the possibilities and limits of action and change in practices or policies.

Programme Structure

Courses include: 

  • Social Work Practice: Critical Frameworks
  • Social Policy: Critical Frameworks
  • Critical Approaches to Social Work Knowledge and Research Methods
