Our Global Practice Concentration leads the education of social workers whose passion is to become part of initiating and sustaining change in the international arena. We can prepare you, in both Clinical and Macro practices, to become involved with people and communities across the globe.
You will learn how to collaborate effectively with partners confronting complex issues such as humanitarian aid, social development, and capacity building. Your work will be guided by the principles of human rights, global justice, and sustainability.
To place Global Practice students in the field, we partner with major non-governmental organizations providing much of the humanitarian relief and development work throughout the world. You will learn how to facilitate financing, launch and manage programs, and initiate grass-roots involvement.
