What will I study?
During the foundation year in the generalist practice curriculum students learn the values, knowledge and skills common to all research-informed professional social work practice to engage, assess, intervene, and evaluate work with individuals, families, groups, organizations and communities. Particular attention is given to prevention, diversity, and advocacy for human rights and social and economic justice.
During the final year in advanced generalist practice curriculum students learn to apply the person and environment construct in the context of field practicum and advanced courses in clinical assessment and evidence-based treatments, research methods, organizational and policy analysis, program development, and administrative practices. Special attention is given to the development of leadership skills to work for the prevention of conditions that limit human rights, the elimination of poverty, and the enhancement of the quality of life for all persons. The program embraces social justice in all areas of practice.
