Page 1 of 39 SWK 615 World Problems and Advocacy Catalog Description Students will assess global problems and examine the various dimensions of globalization; including, global concerns within the social welfare arena and how to advocate within. Through a social justice lens, students will critically evaluate the efficacy with which the social work profession lives up to its social justice mandate within the global context. The goal is to equip students with the tools necessary to identify, critically think, and address current global social issues and identity their roles and responsibilities as a global citizen and a Christian servant.
