PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE TITLE: SOC 234 INTRODUCTION TO SOCIAL WORK PROPOSED (NEW) COURSE DESCRIPTION: An overview of the ethics, philosophy, and methods of the field of social work. Attention will be paid to social problems encountered in central social institutions and community resources available to address these social problems. Pre-requisites SOC 201 and IS SOC 225 LEARNING OUTCOMES: State knowledge and/or skills students will be expected to demonstrate upon completion of this course. For more information, see Guidelines for Developing Program Objectives, Course Objectives, and Learning Outcomes: http://www.keene.edu/senate/proposals/help/Writing4.cfm . Learning outcomes have not changed. RATIONALE: This change is made simply to align the pre-requisites of this course with the actual courses we plan to offer. Previously the pre-reqs were listed as SOC 101 and SOC 225. Since we intend to delete SOC 101 and replace it with SOC 201, and since SOC 225 will no longer be offered and will be replaced with IS-SOC 225, we want the listed pre-requisites to match the reality of our course offerings. RESOURCES: No new resources are needed for this course. We have two qualified adjunct professors who have routinely taught it over the past several years: Constance Schlegelmilch and Jan Manwaring. What additional library resources will be required? Has the library been consulted to determine the adequacy of library holdings or to estimate the cost to improve these sufficiently? None. ADVISORY OPINIONS: None. Updated 14 May 2004.
