SOCW 8110 - Advanced Social Work Theory and Practice


(5 cr.) Population health is an evolving field with the end goal to prevent and control threatening public health issues. In this course, students explore the social foundations for public health and work toward developing the leadership and research skills needed to effectively organize and conduct population-based disease prevention and health promotion programs. Students engage in formative assignments and discussions on social history of public health; determinants and risk factors for population health; policy analysis and advocacy; coalition building, alliances, and consortiums; constituency and community mobilization; media communications; social marketing; community education strategies; and diverse populations as well as those with disproportionate disease burdens. Though a final project, students gain a firm understanding of how to evaluate outcomes of population-based policies and health programs.
