The University of Illinois School of Social Work doctoral program offers an interdisciplinary approach, blending social work courses along with coursework in one or more allied disciplines. Using this approach, students are exposed to diverse research methods while developing substantive expertise in the subject area they select. Students will be paired with an academic advisor based on their academic interests, and the advisor will work closely with to help identify a professional focus plan, select relevant coursework, and monitor the student's progress throughout the program. PhD students conduct research and analyze policies on issues of importance to society, and will be prepared for university-level teaching and for social work research upon graduation. The School works closely with PhD graduates in pursuing job opportunities.
