SWO 695 - Thesis Option

In lieu of SWO 652 , students may apply to the Research Curriculum Committee for permission to take the Thesis Option. This option provides assistance to students wishing to complete a formal thesis rather than an in-class research project through SWO 652  (Research III). Upon completion, the students present and defend the thesis and findings to their thesis committee and other relevant participants. Students wishing to pursue this option should discuss it with the SWO 605  (Research II) instructor who will provide guidance on the process for developing the thesis proposal. A proposal form is completed by the student and the selected faculty chair, reviewed by the Research Committee and approved by the MSW Coordinator prior to registering for the thesis option. Students who are approved for the thesis option receive 6 credits, thus, they take only two elective courses and do not enroll in SWO 652 . This option may be especially attractive for those students contemplating advanced doctoral-level education in social work or in other social sciences.
