London Maymester: Social Justice & Social Change
About the Program (SW 460K | SW 495K | WGS 441): This course explores the historical and contemporary contexts of the British welfare state, social work practice, and institutional efforts to address social injustice. Through cultural immersion, students develop critical self-awareness, deepen their understanding of how the U.K. and the U.S. address pressing social issues, and heighten their awareness of the rights, responsibilities, and actions of global citizenship in an increasingly global society. By listening to and engaging with local communities, students consider the social frameworks within which people live to appreciate the moral and ethical complexities of privilege, inequity, and social justice issues. With London as our classroom, this interdisciplinary course emphasizes learning through field visits, seminars, and lively discussions.
