SW 690 - Integrative Seminar


This course is the capstone experience in the Master of Social Work program, and critically links field education into the course work. Beginning in the fall semester, students develop their plan to complete their Integrative Seminar project (ISP). In the first semester students utilize the knowledge and skills gained in each class to conduct a search of scholarly literature to inform the development of the ISP question. They then explore the literature to locate an evidence based intervention designed to promote a positive outcome. Students conduct the intervention, gather data, analyze the data, and discuss implications for social work practice, research, policy and education. Students are expected to disseminate the results of their ISP by writing a 15-18 page scholarly paper. Students are also expected to disseminate the results of their ISP at their Field Agency or at the Social Work Spring Colloquium in April. Through this Integrative Seminar Project, students are expected to demonstrate how their knowledge of the 9 competencies informs and directs the process. This course assesses Social Work EPAS competencies 1-9.
Credits: 3
