  • Initiatives

Our rigorous PhD program prepares researchers, scholars, and educators to advance the field of social welfare and social work practice.

Learning Outcomes

Research training is at the core of our program. Students develop mastery of:

A substantive area, providing the foundation for advanced social work research

Theoretical perspectives that furnish insight about social issues, social welfare, and social work practice

Research that identifies causes, dynamics, and outcomes of social work practice and interventions

Various research methods that enable the students to build and advance knowledge relevant to the field of social work and to excel as researchers and teachers at leading academic and social welfare institutions around the world

Teaching methods that actively engage the next generation of scholars and practitioners in building the social work knowledge base and in identifying effective, evidence-based practice

Communication skills that scholars use to raise awareness of important social issues and to disseminate findings of their own scholarship

  • Mentorship is an important component of the doctoral program. Incoming students are matched with faculty members who share their research interests and can provide support in the areas of research, career preparation, and other areas throughout the doctoral program journey. 

Equity, Justice and Inclusion

  • The program recruited the most diverse incoming class for 2021-22 with more than 83% AHANA students.
  • BC has a monthly program designed to bring together and support doctoral students of color from across campus.
  • The Pinderhughes Fellowship offers additional financial support to Black doctoral students.

Research Opportunities

  • Students are encouraged and financially supported to submit abstracts to national research conferences. 63% of the doctoral students had papers accepted for presentation at SSWR in 2020. 
  • Students have opportunities to participate in informal research groups with other SSW doctoral students across cohorts who share research interests.
  • Students have co-authored articles and co-presented at conferences in areas such as immigration, aging, adoption, and food security.

Teaching Skills

  • Students develop strong teaching skills through required teaching courses, teaching practicums, paid teaching assistantships, and adjunct teaching opportunities.
  • Many of our doctoral students complete the Apprenticeship in College Teaching offered through BC’s Center for Teaching Excellence.

PhD Curriculum Plan

  • PhD in Social Work

The fulltime PhD in Social Work program typically takes four years. Each student is assigned a faculty mentor with similar research interests. Students spend two years gaining research skills, then two years conducting independent scholarly research.

Second Year

Fourth year, university-wide policy on dissertation submission requirements.

Management of dissertations at Boston College is online-only. The public dissemination of research fits with university social justice values supporting global access to scholarship. The University policy with regard to dissertations is as follows:

All final dissertations must be submitted and published online through ProQuest/UMI, as well as BC’s open access institutional repository, by the University required deadline.

The ProQuest ETD Administrator system is used for student submission, school administration approval, and library management of the process, as it is at the vast majority of Carnegie Tier 1 schools. BC also supports an institutional repository (IR) as its system of record, in which we are legally obligated to preserve all dissertations, and where materials are made available Open Access online according to Creative Commons licensing of the student’s choosing. For both repositories, embargoes may be placed for up to two years. Embargoes can be extended up to five years with school approval. Each system carries its own set of licenses, terms and options (e.g. ProQuest license, BC IR license.)

Exceptions to the requirement to submit digitally will be based on decisions made by individual schools or by the Provost. BC Libraries provide support, instruction, and infrastructure to enable the collection, approval, description, security, access and preservation of all Boston College dissertations and theses.

PhD in Social Work

Preparing the next generation of social work and social welfare scholars and leaders.

Our students develop core competencies that are integral to contemporary social work practice, teaching, and research. The critical linkages between social work and social science research, theory, and practice build upon our faculty  strengths and expertise, and grow through interdisciplinary collaborations and expertise in areas such as health, mental health, trauma, addictions, child welfare, and aging. The PhD in Social Work program offers an opportunity for students to work with, and learn from, these leaders and to pursue a multi-method and highly individualized course of study.

The core curriculum requires a mixed methods foundation, grounding in social work values and a social justice lens, and training in teaching excellence. Student knowledge is deepened through hands-on teaching-practicum experience, the development of a specialization area, and mentored research training. These integrated experiences provide a rich educational foundation for social work leadership in academic, policy, research, and practice arenas.

Please Note: The PhD Program in Social Work no longer requires that applicants take the GRE or MAT exams.
