Global Social Work Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Areas of Study A-Z

The certificate in global social work gives students the opportunity to understand the application of a global and human rights perspective to social workers’ practice in their own communities and internationally. Through course work, field placements working with refugee/immigrant populations, and one international trip, students get the opportunity to apply what is learned in the program in local, national, and international settings.

Students accepted into the certificate program will take SW 659 - Social Work With Immigrants and Refugees  in the fall semester in conjunction with their field placement. Students will take SW 688 in the spring. This course involves one international trip. Past destinations included China, Netherlands, Great Britain, Thailand, and Japan. Through this hands-on experience, students learn real world applications to theories in global social work and the impact that international policies and globalization have on local populations.
