SOCW 8112 - Social Work Scholarship


(5 cr.)
To be responsible scholar-practitioners and stewards in the social work profession, students must understand social problems within the broader intellectual landscape: that is, the social construction of the social problem and the role it plays in the public’s perception of the social problem. Additionally, students must be prepared to locate the historical context of the problem and the social welfare responses. Using critical reading and evaluation skills, tools, and techniques, students begin to evaluate the lay and empirical literature of a social problem underlying their future capstone or dissertation topic to prepare for the literature review process.
Prerequisites
