Social Work: Ph.D. Program in Human Development

Ph.D. Program

Marywood's Ph.D. Program in Human Development takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding human development, while still allowing for in-depth study in one of five specializations, including social work.

The Social Work Specialization prepares students to assume a variety of roles in social work education and leadership in social work practice.  A Master of Social Work (MSW) degree is required for admission into the social work specialization of the Ph.D. Program.

"We must not, in trying to think about how we can make a big difference, ignore the small daily differences we can make which, over time, add up to big differences that we often cannot foresee."
