SOC 464 - Social Work Practice with Communities and Organizations

Credits: Three (3)
Prerequisite: Completion of SOC/PSYC-341 and SOC/PSYC-342
This course prepares students to apply a generalist perspective and systems framework to social work practice with communities and organizations as well as task/problem-solving groups within larger systems and settings.  Students learn to integrate social work values, knowledge, and skills within an ecological framework for planned change with a particular focus on indirect/macro social work practice with populations of special concern to social work.  Of special concern are groups experiencing social and economic injustices based on racial, cultural, class, age, religious/spiritual, gender, sexual orientation, and disability characteristics.
