Foundations of Social Work
Foundations of Social Work is a seminar and experiential-learning course designed to explore an overview of the Social Work field. The primary goal is for students to understand what social work entails and how it is implemented by professionals. The course explores the theoretical, ethical, economic, political, cultural, and justice forces that impact the field on a macro level. With that foundation, students work through the stages of the helping profession: engagement, assessment, intervention, and termination at a micro level. This course delves into the marginalized and vulnerable populations of our society to prepare students to be empathetic, knowledgeable professionals.
