Thank you for your interest in the PhD program at the University of Maryland School of Social Work. We have an exciting program that prepares graduates to conduct social work research and teach the next generation of social workers.

Our PhD Materials will provide you with a brief introduction, focusing on some of the unique aspects of our program and highlights of the opportunities we provide. Much more information about the program is available online at this website. I encourage you to explore this site for my blog and information about admissions, faculty and student research, courses, and funding opportunities.

I hope the viewbook and the website are helpful. Please feel free to contact me by email at or by phone at 410-706-7960 if you have questions, want more information, or would like to arrange a visit. We love when prospective students visit the School.
