EPARTMENT DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY, PSYCHOLOGY AND SOCIAL WORK GRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAMMES
Graduate Studies is a space reserved for critical enquiry and interaction. I t is a space where we encounter new ideas and gain a deeper
understanding of familiar concepts.
It is here
that we consciously test theories, and re-assess concepts and taken-for-granted philosophies
against the sounding-board of social life. In the Caribbean, as graduate students and researchers, it is our responsibility to seek to understand society, social forces and psychological functioning, and to be able to identify both the global and the distinctive. Our work can serve to add to the body of social sc ience
knowledge, and to the techniques for intervention, both at the individual and the soc ial levels.
Within the Department of Sociology, Psychology and Social Work, our graduate programmes cover a range that spans individual psychotherapy, identity and group functioning
organisational and macro-soc ial analysis, and social-historical development. This diversity places us in a unique position as it can be a source of creative exchange, and a catalyst for problem-solving for groups and individuals. Caribbean societies at all levels. We are therefore poised to impac t deeply on
While this promise is there, it can only be realised if we
subject ourselves to the unrelenting demands of academic discipline, and if we keep in min d the inter-penetrations between society, culture and personality. This society is ours; we must
understand it and we must change it. If you make the Graduate Commitment, you can do this!

THE M.S.W. SOCIAL WORK RESEARCH REPORT (SW62D) The Social Work Research Report is an essential component of the MSW Programme. It is intended to ensure a complementary balance between the practica experiences and the research aspects. The relationship between the research methodologies and the implementation of a specific research report will also ensure a complete and smooth continuum of learning. The process will involve the preparation of a proposal in the Research Methods course, followed by implementation of the proposal in the field as part of a separate course – Social Work Research Report (SW62D) – in the following semester. This process will ensure that students will be able to complete the programme within the specified time-frame. Students will be required to produce a well-organised, systematic and clearly presented report which seeks to analyse a theoretical or an empirical problem by critical application of the necessary conceptual frameworks and methodological tools. The Report must be anchored in Social Work and reflect integrated learning by the student. The Report should: (i) (ii) not be less than 8,000 words nor more than 10,000 words.(The student is required to indicate the word count when submitting the report.); be prepared in accordance with the University’s regulations regarding the presentation of postgraduate papers and theses;
follow the formatting guidelines for writing research papers as set out in the latest edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA); be submitted to the Course Coordinator on the given deadline date.
Late submissions will automatically result in a failing grade. A “B” grade (50%) is the minimum requirement for a pass. METHOD OF ASSESSMENT Award of the Master of Social Work (MSW) degree requires a minimum of a B grade (50%) in both coursework and examination in all courses.
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS To be accepted into the programme of study for the MSW, candidates must: Hold an undergraduate degree in Social Work with a GPA of 2.85 (i.e. with at least Lower Second Class Honours) or another degree with a Diploma in Social Work (with a GPA of 2.85) from an approved University.
