Conduct Research on a Campus Recognized for Community-based Studies
Students entering the CCC Social Work track often come to the program with a master of social work degree as well as experience in clinical practice. However, the program also provides flexibility for students without an advanced degree in social work to join this track when their research interests align with those of CCC-affiliated faculty in Tulane’s School of Social Work.
Dissertations by Social Work-CCC track students have included the following:
- Jocelyn Horner (PhD 2017), “Digital Storytelling as Self-Advocacy: Exploring African-American Adolescent Women's Life Stories as Pathways to Positive Development”
- Curtis H. Davis Jr. (PhD 2019), “Lifting the Veil: Considering the Social Worker's Approach to Racism-based Trauma in Work with the Incarcerated Person”
- Jessica Liddell (PhD 2021), “Women's Reproductive Health Experiences among the United Houma Nation”
- Jenn Lilly (PhD 2021), “Altavoces: A Digital Narrative Research Project Examining the Well-being of Latino Immigrant Youth in New Orleans”
- Megha M. Patel (PhD 2021), “A Father's Role in Early Childhood Development: Examining Gender Equality in Rwanda”
The School of Social Work (pictured above) is located in downtown New Orleans, adjacent to the Tulane Medical Center, with efficient transportation to Tulane’s uptown campus. CCC Social Work students may utilize office and meeting spaces in the spacious and newly renovated building, while taking required CCC courses Uptown.
Due to the robust online presence of Tulane’s School of Social Work, Social Work-CCC PhD students have the opportunity to become teaching assistants for both on-the-ground and remote courses.
