This course examines the multidisciplinary nature of the profession of Social Work. Students learn about the historical roots of social work and influences from other disciplines such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, criminal justice, law, education, and political science, as well as social welfare policy in contemporary practice.

Students are required to engage in 20 hours of service learning to experience the delivery of the Seven Core Functions of Generalist Social Work Practice in a community setting. The Council on Social Work Education’s (CSWE) 10 Competencies of Generalist Social Work Practice are infused in the discourse and assignments in this course.
