SW 569 Advanced Standing Human Rights 2 cr.  (2-0-0)

This course is designed for students who’ve previously earned an undergraduate social work degree from a CSWE accredited institution and been admitted to the Advanced Standing MSW Track.  Since students will have foundational knowledge in social justice/human rights, and a beginning awareness of the influence of personal biases and values that impact practice with diverse groups, content is presented in an accelerated format.   The course examines the phenomena of power, privilege and oppression using a framework of intersectionality with a focus on race/ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status and sexual orientation.
