The degree is designed for candidates to develop advanced skills in carrying out independent and sustained research in social work. A candidate will have appropriately experienced supervisor/s and an Advisory Committee who in consultation with the candidate, arranges a course of supervised research designed to suit the individual requirements and interests of the candidate.

All students are required to attend departmental seminars over the period of their candidature. Students will produce a 30,000-40,000 word thesis that is examined externally. The thesis should demonstrate a critical application of specialist knowledge and make an independent contribution to existing scholarship in the area of research.
