This course provides new BSW majors, as well as undergraduate students who are exploring the field of social work, with an overview of the basic components that describe social work as an academic discipline and a practice profession. Students are introduced to the primary purpose, knowledge base, values, and practice skills of social work. Opportunities are provided to explore various fields of practice in public and private agency settings. Students examine professional social work roles and responsibilities from the perspective of practitioners who provide direct and indirect services to individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. Practice problems and issues related to values and ethics, diversity, social and economic justice and vulnerable populations will be discussed. The course also provides students with information and resources to explore the requirements of a social work major.
