CSWRK 5035 Policy

This course provides students with skills to understand the relationship between agency/organization policies and local, state, federal and global policies and regulatory guidelines as these influence the nature and scope of human services.  The history of human and civil rights as codified through social policies and programs frames our analysis of the nature and scope of contemporary social welfare.  Students will analyze the intended and unintended consequences of specific social policies to advance social and economic justice.  Students will explore and debate the rights and responsibilities of government, citizens, and corporations in a just and humane society.
