SWK410: International Social Work

3 Credit(s)
Through a comprehensive, cross-national comparison of responses to major social welfare issues, students deepen their awareness of the interrelated nature of societal values and social policies. Issues of global poverty, oppression, hunger, human trafficking, food deserts, abuse of women, homophobia and racism are examined, with emphasis on the social worker’s role in promoting human rights, social justice, and sustainable development for all persons. Venues of community development worldwide are explored, with consideration of how each works to address the needs of marginalized persons, while promoting intergenerational equity and affirmative action for disenfranchised populations. The interface of the international and domestic is examined in light of generalist practice.
Prerequisite(s): Senior Social Work majors and others interested in the international arena.
Theme: Building Global Awareness
