SOWK 4007 Community/Macro Social Work Theory and Practice (4 credits)
This foundation course provides students with a foundational level understanding of macro social work practice and roles. The course builds upon knowledge of human behavior in the social environment and adds theories of change to understand diverse communities and social service networks and the relationship of local, national and global interventions. The course introduces students to empirically supported models and emerging interventions that address macro level social issues. Students complete community/organizational assessments and participate in work groups to learn how to engage, assess and intervene in communities and organizations.
