16 FACULTY OF SOCIAL SCIENCES DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA (PGD) IN SOCIAL WORK Philosophy That the field social work is very wide and ever expanding is an established fact. There are, in fact, individuals whose interest, orientation and job description are social work related, yet their qualifications are not strong enough to ensure their entry into the Professional Master of Social Work Programme. Experience also shows that such people apply for placement on the programme on yearly basis, but are never offered the opportunity. It is on the strength of the above that the Department of Sociology proposes to commence the Post Graduate Diploma in Social Work to strengthen the academic base of such candidates before they can be offered admission into the mainstream Master of Social Work Programme. Objectives 1. To provide the necessary base and additional requirement for entry into the full professional Master of Social Work Programme. 2.
