SOWK 200 - Introduction to Social Work


4 hours
Offers students the opportunity to learn about Olivet’s generalist social work program. It is further designed to help students make an educated decision about whether or not to pursue social work as a profession. Students will learn about the nature and mission of social work. They will also be introduced to social work’s history, ethics, values, knowledge base, and skills. Students will learn about career options, licensure, diversity, populations-at-risk, and the relationship of religion and politics to social work. They will also be introduced to social work’s unique person-in-environment perspective. In addition to classroom learning, students are required to perform 30 clock hours of applied learning during the course of the semester. UG
