Formal organizations and ad hoc community groups within neighborhoods and communities are analyzed, students learn the mediating role of organizations in urban communities, and they focus on macro level concerns including oppression, discrimination, social change efforts, the role of partisan politics, and the uses of power to affect community change. A 15-hour service learning component introduces students to macro practice in private human service organizations and in communities. Open only to students who are candidates for BSW degree. Prerequisite: SSW331. Spring semester. 3 credits. Fee.
