Our 39-credit DSW program is aimed at experienced social workers with a desire to advance their professional practice and address the research-to-practice gaps through the application of implementation science. DSW students will have the opportunity to build knowledge and learn to effectively integrate evidence into the practice setting to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our program incorporates the signature strengths of the school’s trauma-informed and human rights (TI-HR) perspective, and integrates these concepts into the implementation and evaluation of evidence-based treatments with vulnerable populations. As a part-time, fully online program, the DSW capitalizes on the latest digital technologies to innovate social work education and practice.
