International Social Work Research
The course aims to support students' understanding of knowledge production at the global level. With globalization at the core of the discourse, students are encouraged to integrate their academic work with their practice experiences and to think about social work research and interventions at the local and international levels. Accordingly, concepts such as neo-colonization, armed conflicts, genocide, forced migration, and other forms of structural and systemic oppression will be presented as a means of understanding the complexities in international social work research. Building upon your existing knowledge of various types and forms of research, the course also offers an advanced level of qualitative and quantitative research designs and sampling techniques for hard-to-reach populations. Emphasis is placed on data analysis and report writing.
