Abstract

In this paper the researcher has made an effort to bring together relevant literature pertaining to studies on social work higher education. Empirical studies and research articles published on social work education in India in a number of journals, as well as content that has been published in websites have been used for this purpose. The review has been conducted to understand the different fndings and perspectives on social work higher education in India. Social work educators and researchers have analyzed social work education in India and have presented their views and opinions mostly in a general sense, despite locating the discussion within a theoretical framework. However, the paper found out that very few empirical researches on social work higher education have been carried out in India, and none of them specifcally focuses on specializations in the social work higher education system in the country. The objective of this review is to highlight gaps in social work education and suggest areas of improvement.
