The Advanced Global Topics in Social Work course is taught by various members of the program faculty and is typically offered during the winter semester. Each version of the course has its own subtitle, some being offered one time only while others may be repeated. Advanced Global Topics in Social Work courses provide an in depth focus on a global social work issue, such as migration, displacement, poverty, climate change, indigeneity, etc. Additionally, students in the Advanced Global Topics in Social Work course have the opportunity to apply for the Faculty-Led Global Course Extension (GCE) mini-course that includes a 2-4 week trip to a pertinent international location that will allow students to further engage and explore the themes and topics introduced in the on-campus course.
This course is designed to prepare social work students to effectively engage in professional practice through meaningful intergroup and globally-focused dialogue. Through learning about and directly engaging in intergroup dialogue, this course will prepare students for work with diverse and global populations by understanding cultural competence, engaging in cultural humility to meaningful dialogue with global populations, and employing facilitation skills in a global setting. This course will be co-taught by an instructor, and will include interaction with students, from one of UM SSW’s global institution partners.
