Course: International Social Welfare --A British Perspective (3 Credits)

Summer 2022 Study Abroad Program in London

This intensive, exciting two-week, 3 credit study abroad program in London will allow students to experience history, culture, and the richly vibrant environment of London through various site visits, tours, and presentations. Students will learn about the growth and development of social work and social welfare systems in England and understand its relevance in today’s London: “a living laboratory” of multiculturalism, diversity, migration, and globalization. The course will allow students to increase their awareness of diverse cultures that form the integral multiethnic tapestry of the area and challenge them to move beyond their own ethnocentric perspectives and develop intercultural competence which is necessary to perform in an increasingly globalized society.
