Social Work PhD Students

The PhD in Social Work is preparing the next generation of social work leaders in research, education, and academia to conduct scholarship for social change.

These student-scholars are committed to conducting innovative research that is community based and socially embedded. Their work is grounded in the cultural diversity of the Southwest and Arizona’s unique place in the borderlands region.

Students in the Ph.D. in Social Work program work alongside world class faculty and research centers to nurture their curiosity and pursue independent and original creative work.
