The "New" DSW Is Here: Supporting Degree Completion and Student Success
Diaz, Mery
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v35 n1-2 p101-115 2015
Some have questioned whether there should be a practice doctorate in social work. Academics and other key stakeholders would appear to agree that the degree has a role within 21st-century social work practice and education. Practitioners increasingly seek out the degree, and current and emerging programs have developed to meet that demand. This article seeks to identify the characteristics of the new DSW students and their needs, and to target areas of support that DSW programs should provide for successful degree completion. These include financial assistance, academic rigor, and mentoring opportunities.
