This course will examine the history of social work and social work education. By reading and discussing influential historic social work texts, students will understand and consider the enduring tensions, achievements, and possibilities of the social work profession. The influences of socioeconomic class, race, and gender on the development of social work and social work education are considered. The longstanding tensions between theory and practice and between micro and macro practice are also addressed. The historical legacy of leadership provided by educators and other influential persons in the social work profession are examined. Students will take on the role of professor by presenting historic texts and leading thought-provoking and engaging discussions. Students will conduct a scholarly historic analysis of archival materials on a topic related to social work education that culminates in a research paper and review a peer’s final paper, as well. Students will develop a consciousness of their identity as a social work instructor and scholar and be able to identify and articulate the historic antecedents that have influenced this development

This course provides the first year MSW student with the knowledge and skills needed for generalist social work practice. Students develop communication and interviewing skills, which are used in work with client systems of all sizes. It is taken concurrently with a field placement, which serves as a practice lab for applying theory and skills learned in the classroom. This first course in a year long sequence (students are expected to stay in the same section both semesters) focuses on understanding the generalist and integrative models of practice, social work values and ethics, the strengths perspective, empowerment principles and basic principles of ethical reasoning. Student self- awareness and self-assessment are especially important since they facilitate the development of an authentic style of practice.

Candidates for the MSW degree must satisfactorily conduct a clinical research project, present the findings, and complete a final written and bound report. The purpose of the clinical research project is to provide the student with an opportunity to independently conceptualize a research problem, formulate a research design, implement the research, analyze the data, address ethical and cultural considerations, and disseminate the findings. The project is a logical extension of required research courses (GRSW 580 and GRSW 681) and requires application, integration, and further development of previously acquired skills and knowledge. The research must be relevant to clinical social work practice. The project must demonstrate an original and clear contribution to the body of social work knowledge in the student's selected area of focus. It should demonstrate the student's ability to integrate social work theory with research findings.
