SOWK 201 - Introduction to Social Work

(3 cr) Sophomore-level course designed to introduce the beginning-level social work student to the issues and knowledge with which social welfare and social work are concerned. Through examination of the scope of social welfare as a concept, the structures that have grown out of it, and the theory and practice techniques which enable the structures to function, this course will attempt to lay the base for later, more detailed and advanced study of basic policy and practice concerns. The students will be introduced to the generalist concept of social work practice upon which the undergraduate curriculum is built and will have the opportunity to explore their own readiness to identify with the values, principles, and practices of the social work profession. Required for all social work majors. Prerequisites: SOCI 203 , PSYC 101 , or consent of instructor.
