The 2001 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards: The Value of Research Revisited

Barry R. Cournoyer, Margaret E. Adamek

Abstract


Although doctoral programs in social work are not accredited by the
Council on Social Work Education nor subject to the Educational Policy and
Accreditation Standards (EPAS, 2001), DSW and Ph.D. programs are affected by the
nature and quality of baccalaureate and masters’ socia lwork education. In this article,
the authors discuss the implications of the 2001 EPAS as they relate to BSW and MSW
graduates’ motivation and preparation for doctoral education.
