Electives

Please see the academic calendar for possible PhD electives. PhD electives are courses at the 700 level or higher. The elective course may be done as a Directed Studies/Independent Study course with a faculty member in Social Work or in a related discipline. The Independent Study: Letter of Agreement form must be completed and signed by the instructor, student and the associate dean: PhD program and submitted to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. An additional form (available from the programs assistant for the PhD program) must be completed to have the Directed Studies course registered.

Field Learning Option

This course will be adapted to meet the needs of individual students for whom field experience in a particular setting will advance their ability to conduct rigorous research that will have relevance for social work practice. 

The student is responsible for identifying the setting, negotiating the details of the role and submitting a written proposal for the Field Learning Option to the PhD committee for approval. A written paper related to the field learning experience and the student's program of study will be required. This paper will be graded by an individual approved by the PhD committee who meets criteria for membership in Laurier's graduate faculty.

The grade assigned to the paper will be the grade assigned for the course. Normally, full-time students must complete the option by the end of term four. Students choosing the Field Learning Option will be exempt from SK820: Doctoral Seminar and the required elective course.
