PROGRAM/COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This intensive, exciting two-week, 3 credit study abroad program in London will allow students to experience history, culture, and the richly vibrant environment of London through various site visits, tours, and presentations.

Students will learn about the growth and development of social work and social welfare systems in England and understand its relevance in today’s London: “a living laboratory” of multiculturalism, diversity, migration, and globalization. 

Students will also gain knowledge of social service systems that promote social justice and become familiar with historic, economic, social and political forces that shaped the development of social welfare systems in UK and its impact on welfare systems in the U.S.

The course will allow students to increase their awareness of diverse cultures that form the integral multiethnic tapestry of the area and challenge them to move beyond their own ethnocentric perspectives and develop intercultural competence which is necessary to perform in an increasingly globalized society.
