SOWK1013 (Core)

Introduction to social policy and development studies

This course introduces the foundation concepts and theoretical frameworks that inform social development practice and policy planning. Students will apply case studies from the developed and developing world to investigate diverse models of social intervention and gain understanding about strengths and weaknesses of existing models of social intervention. The two courses, SOWK1013 Introduction to social policy and development studies and SOWK1014 Introduction to social development, are mutually exclusive. Students can only complete either one of these two courses within their whole course of study.
