This course is the second required social policy course for all social work majors. The course examines the current American social welfare system as it operates on national, state, and local levels. Specific attention is given to examining the major public and private sector programs delivering services in the areas of income support, housing and homelessness, health and mental health, children, families, and aging in an effort to prevent poverty. Students develop skills in the use of scientific knowledge to understand the impact contemporary issues have on defining social problems, techniques for analyzing existing policies and programs, and developing intervention strategies for meeting the needs of a diverse population. Conceptual frameworks for comparing American and global social welfare systems are presented. Prerequisite: SOWK 260
