S W 5810 - Advanced Community Social Work Practice (3)


When Offered: Fall
This advanced course focuses on the social work principles of empowerment and social change as they apply to communities. Building upon the foundation introduction to macro community practice and related theories, students will gain a more detailed knowledge of the skills and strategies needed to engage effectively in community organizing, development and planning. Consistent with social work’s focus on oppressed and disenfranchised populations, students will explore the concept of community diversity, moving beyond the concept of race/ethnicity. Students will also gain advanced skills in the use of various community assessments.
