SWK 306 Community Service Learning & Professional Development Seminar
Students will participate in a 75-hour service learning experience within a local social service agency, school, or other human service organization. Concurrently, students will attend a one-hour weekly seminar-format class. The purpose of the seminar service learning experience is to expose students to professional community-based human service practice and help students prepare for the senior field practicum (SWK 454). The course is designed to expose students to the beginning engagement skills, with particular attention to professional roles and boundaries of social work, social work values and ethics, self-reflection, development of the professional self, the importance of social justice values, cultural competency and cultural humility in providing services to clients and the policy contexts of services. Note: a grade of B or higher is required for students to be eligible to enter a field placement (SWK 454). This course may be repeated once.
