This Advanced Social Work Studies course from University of Dundee is ideal if you have been employed in any area of social work, including working with young people, people with disabilities, families, people in poverty, and within the criminal justice system.
You will be encouraged to share your experience and knowledge with other postgraduate students, both from social work and other professions including teachers, health professionals, and community workers.
With research now considered an important area of social work, this course is an excellent opportunity to develop your research skills and learn the latest research methods.
