SOCW 501 - Human Behavior in the Social Environment I


3 Credits
This course uses biological, psychological, social, cultural and spiritual perspectives to build understanding of people within their environments, providing a context for Social Work assessment and practice. Students study human development through the life course as it is affected by social and cultural diversity, social, political and economic barriers and opportunities, and the roles and status of women. Students apply theories and research-based knowledge to the interrelationships among individuals, families, groups, organizations, communities and cultures in local, transnational and international contexts. This includes relationships characterized by social conflict, oppression and violence, and relationships that contribute to human and social development, equity and peace.
