There is some gradual growth in training social network analysis within public health, and most large schools of public health have someone doing network analysis who possibly teaches a class or in conjunction with a Sociology or other social science department. Usually this occurs at the doctoral level, but in some cases a few adventurous or unwitting master's level students will participate. I teach a network analysis course with a public health orientation and this semester have 3 of 15 students who are MPH (Master of Public Health) students. I don't know of many courses or efforts in Social Work.
This is all just my impression.
