SW 305: Theories and Practices for Community Action and Social Change (3 credits, SS distribution credit)
This foundation course is designed to prepare students to be informed and active participants in the process of community building and social change. The course uses a multidisciplinary framework to develop competencies that will help students envision what community action and social change look like, identify and implement steps towards social change, build on positive sources of power, indigenous knowledge and experiences of individuals, groups, and communities who are engaged in social change efforts.
(12 credits, minimum of 3 credits in each cluster)
Note: Class substitutions may be made upon advisor approval.
Upon completion of core course and electives, students will enroll in a one-credit capstone course to develop an integrative learning project, in consultation with social work faculty advisors or other faculty steering committee members.
