Current Issues in Social Work Doctoral Education
Goodman, Harriet
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v35 n1-2 p29-45 2015
The purpose of doctoral programs in social work is to prepare research-scientists who contribute to knowledge that guides professional practice and educators competent to teach new cohorts of social work practitioners. In grooming stewards of the profession, doctoral programs also must prepare their graduates to support the larger contemporary needs of the profession, including its long-standing commitment to economic and social justice, particularly during a period of increasing inequality. The newly adopted 2013 GADE Quality Guidelines provide the building blocks for evaluation and renewal for social work doctoral programs. These include knowledge of social work as a discipline, research and scholarship, teaching, and aspirational outcomes for students, each of which is critically examined within the current context of U.S. doctoral programs and the status of the social work profession.
