5385. Human Rights and Social Work

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: Open to students in both the MSW program and the STEP program.

Grading Basis: Graded

Theoretical, conceptual, and practical foundation for social workers to engage in a human rights-based approach to social work. Students will gain an understanding of the international human rights system, social work's contribution to achieving human rights, and how international human rights principles can be applied to social work practice. We will use a number of cases from varied countries, including the United States, to examine how social workers can both advocate for and respect human rights in their work.
