SOWK3010 - Orientation To Social Work
Spring 2015

This course is an introduction to history, knowledge, values, and skills of the social work profession. Students will learn about the central values, issues, and methods for facilitating social change conceptualized by social work practice with individuals, families, groups, organizations, communities, and policies. Grounded in a generalist model, social work is studied from the perspective of historical background and contemporary fields of service. Social work's responsibilities to advocate for populations who are oppressed and human diversity are emphasized throughout the course.
