Social Work Study Abroad Opportunity in Germany

Germany: Human Rights and Social Work within European Framework  (May 29- June 9,2012)

This course examines human rights within a social work framework from a European perspective. The European focus is on Germany although discussion about Europe generally is also an important part of the course. The course provides students with an introduction to economic and political human rights in Europe, with a United States perspective integrated into the instruction. Field visits and course instruction illustrate human rights principles as they apply to social work. The location of Munich adds essential context to the study of human rights, as contemporary human rights arose from the history in this part of the world. Participants have the opportunity to explore human rights that apply to their own experiences, as well as historical events. Typically, the program is offered in January and May/June.
