Sociology 350 - England: Social Work in London
English speaking yet culturally diverse and urban, London provides a rich array of social work programs serving multi-cultural populations across a broad spectrum of needs. Students will have the opportunity to research, explore, and network with services, participate in site visits, and meet with British social workers in a variety of professional settings. These may include child guidance, victims' services, health and mental care settings, housing and homelessness, substance abuse, child welfare, and others. This is an opportunity to increase understanding of global social work, comparing with social work in the United States, as well as to develop cultural competency and self-awareness.
