Course content

The Advanced Social Work MSc supports the development of experienced social workers who are in some form of leadership role.

It seeks to consolidate learning in line with the eighth level of the College of Social Work's Professional Capabilities Framework (PCF). At this stage, you are expected to be a specialist with some strategic influence.

Applicants to the MSc have usually achieved the Professional Social Work Practice PGCert and PGDip and therefore already chosen a practice, education or management route. Advice and guidance on this issue are available from the admissions tutor if desired.

As a course of continuing professional development (CPD), the Advanced Social Work MSc is not accredited by a Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Body (PSRB). However, you must still be registered as a social worker with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to be accepted on to the programme.

Course structure

The course is delivered part-time over one to two years. It gives you the opportunity to:

• research an area of social work practice in depth;
• develop understanding of, and skills in, research planning in relation to advanced professional practice; and
• develop further self-directed skills in advanced scholarship.

Areas of study

The only module of the MSc, Research in Advanced Social Work Practice: The Dissertation, is a substantial assessment of Level 7 study. It develops your ability to carry out research independently, to evaluate research and its implications for practice, and to commission and manage the research of other social workers.

You will have the support of a dissertation supervisor throughout your studies.

Careers and employability

This MSc will advance you to the highest levels of the PCF and of social work practice. You will be more likely to secure a position as a strategic social work educator, a principal social worker or a strategic social work manager, depending on your chosen specialism.
