I'm a prospective MSW applicant (applying Fall 2017 for Fall 2018) and would like to reach out to those of you who have already done extensive research on MSW programs. I am primarily interested in working with women, LGBT populations, and those affected by sexual assault and/or sexual/domestic violence. I would like to do research in gender, sexuality, and trauma. Which MSW programs have a strong curriculum in these issues or even offer specific concentrations in violence, gender, or trauma? Where should I look? Thank you!
My main research interest lies in gendered violence - currently it's male victims of domestic assault, but I can't find any faculty professors in Sociology who are researching the topic. All the professor's I come across who work in gender in Sociology, seem to focus on gender and employment/marriage. I'm not really interested in Gender Studies departments because I want a broader width of research than gender in the future. Does anyone know of any decent (not necessarily top 20) departments where there is a professor who is working on this topic? Or should I put this research on the back burner and go into a more conventional research area until later I get into a program?
