HUMN 6151 - Human Services Theory, Research, and Practice


(5 cr.) Understanding how theory, research, and practice are connected is a vital skill for the human services scholar-practitioner. 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. The culmination of the course is the development of a conceptual framework to address a critical issue in human services practice.
