MSWK 604 - ADVANCED SOCIAL POLICY
Advanced Social Policy is a required course in the advanced concentration year of the MSW program and is taken after successful completion of Social Welfare Programs and Policy I. This advanced concentration course examines local, state and federal social problems from the perspective of their impact on individuals, families, and communities, focusing on at-risk populations in the context of an urban environment. The course builds on the policy content offered in the Professional Foundation Year and links policy to practice and research skills that have been developed. Emphasis is placed on the link between social and economic justice and issues relating to diversity and social action. The first part of the course is an examination of the policy making cycle, inclusive of social problem definition, policy formulation, implementation and critical analysis of policy. A detailed section on evaluation of policies as they affect societal structures, communities, agencies, clients and practitioners is then discussed. Finally, a major section of the course presents theories related to organizational change and strategies for practitioners to influence policies and promote change at the client level, the agency level, the community level and the broader society.
