The arena in which social service is practiced today usually has its boundaries set by rules and budgets developed through public mandates and its policies set by society standards. The student will review the changing standards of our society and study the changes in social policy that are incorporated to meet public policy. Both historical and current information will develop an understanding of the interrelationship between social service and social policy as well as the conflicts that do develop. Delivered as an accelerated, hybrid course.
