OUR CRITICAL AREAS OF RESEARCH

Our distinguished faculty are currently conducting a number of studies, dedicated to three main thematic areas of research:

1. Aging

Social workers play important roles in improving the quality of life of older persons and their caregivers. A number of our college's faculty conduct research in this important area.
