Course content

Students who do not require a qualification to practise social work, but who wish to enhance and develop their social work skills and knowledge at Masters level, will be interested in this programme. Without the requirement for practice placements, the Master's learning, research and, ultimately, qualification can be achieved within one year.

Post graduate students who wish to develop a research profile, or to further their careers in terms of practice or leadership would be very interested in this programme.

At Dundee, we have a range of expertise within the social work discipline, including interdisciplinarity (a specific and unique strength of the programme), leadership, research, values and social work practice. Social work at Dundee was rated as top in Scotland in the National Student Survey 2015 and achieved 100% rating in 'overall satisfaction.' This is indicative of the quality of the teaching staff and of student engagement with the programme. Students undertaking the MSc Advanced Social Work Studies will, of course, also benefit from that quality and engagement.
