PhD Social Work
This PhD is aimed at social work practitioners, researchers, managers and educators, and offers you an opportunity to grow the knowledge base of social work through your own original contribution to research. You will work on an advanced research project with a supervisory team who closely align with your research interests, and will meet with you throughout the programme to support you as you develop your research skills and knowledge.
During the PhD you will engage and critique contemporary approaches, theories and research evidence and apply these to the social work practice context. We take an interdisciplinary approach, and encourage supervisory collaborations with colleagues from other disciplines within the School of Health Professions, and from other faculties at the University of Plymouth.
