HUMN 8151 - Human Services Theory, Research, and Practice


(5 cr.) Understanding the connection among theory, research, and practice is a vital skill for human services scholar-practitioners. In this course, students critically review traditional and contemporary theories in human services and how they inform practice. In addition, students examine the strengths and weaknesses of the existing body of research in serving a dynamic society, placing special emphasis on cultural bias and traditional theory. Throughout the course, students review how theories and research studies apply to communities, individuals, problems, and policies. Students culminate their study with the development of a conceptual framework in which they address a critical issue in human services practice.
