Undergraduate Social Work: Generalist Practice
Generalist Social Work students are trained to work with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities in a variety of settings in pursuit of social, economic, and environmental justice. Generalist practitioners use a person-in-environment theory as a multifaceted way of viewing and providing services for a problem. Generalists work with individuals to recognize and build upon inherent strengths while working to minimize weaknesses. They engage, assess, organize, intervene, and organize with and on behalf of individuals, families, and communities. Generalist practitioners engage in community development, organizational development, and evaluation in order to ensure that services are useful, effective, and ethical.
Graduate Social Work Specialization: Community Partnerships
The School of Social Work’s Master of Social Work specialization is community partnerships. Community partnerships recognize and explore the importance of community demographics, politics, economics, geography, and human service delivery systems. These components encourage partnerships that focus social work engagement, assessment, intervention, and evaluation at the community level with the capacity to intervene at community subsystem and/or suprasystem levels. It requires social work practitioners to consider and respond to the broader community dynamics that impact individuals, families, and groups with a particular emphasis on those considered to be vulnerable and at risk.
