SOWK 670 Advanced Rural Research Methods for Social Work

This research course is required for both Generalist and Advanced Generalist students.  The course emphasizes the application of research methods for the evaluation of practice effectiveness and/or program outcomes in rural practice.  Students will develop a single case design, choose a client, group, behavior, or program and engage in the evaluation process.  The course emphasizes the evaluation of evidence-based interventions and the utilization of the results to make practice decisions that improve the quality of services, initiate changes in policy, and improve delivery of social services.  Students will expand their understanding of the essential components of a research project that were introduced in SOWK 570-Generalist Research or in their respective BSW program.
