Our Research

  • Memorial University's Strategic Research Intensity Plan 2014-2020 builds on the university's Research Strategy Framework to support the university's vision to " ... be one of the most distinguished public universities in Canada and beyond ..." .
  • The School of Social Work is an active and vibrant research environment. Faculty are engaged in a diverse range of scholarly activities, much of it funded through tri-council agencies, contracts with federal agencies, provincial and local foundations and agencies, and through internal competitions at Memorial University. 

Programme Structure

  • Field education is an integral part of the MSW curriculum and constitutes advanced preparation for a wide range of innovative professional social work activities ranging from social action/ justice to community development/capacity-building to policy writing/analysis to program development/ evaluation to supervision to direct/clinical practice - all working with individuals, families, groups, communities, organizations, and/or systems.
  • MSW course work and field instruction constitute different approaches to the same educational goal of preparing students for advanced, specialized, and /or leadership social work roles. Field practica are educationally-focussed (rather than a training experience) and, as such, there is a clear differentiation between work and student learning opportunities.
