SWO-703 Seminar in Ethics and Social Justice

3 credits

This seminar is grounded in the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics, which suggests that all actions social workers take have ethical implications and consequences, and that social justice considerations in particular must be weighed with every action. Through examination of ethics literature, public records of ethical violations, class discussions, and case-based learning, students will develop knowledge and skill in using an antiracist, ethics-informed approach to decision making and taking action in the core areas of the DSW program: practice, teaching, and leadership.
