Our MBA/MSW program teaches students to apply managerial and economic principles to social work practice. It's how our graduates lead highly effective service agencies and create new programs and policies. This collaborative program between the School of Management and the School of Social Work leads to both an MBA and MSW and reduces the time and credits compared to completing the programs separately.
Interventions I introduces students to professional social work practice that is evidence-based, is trauma-informed, and incorporates a human rights perspective. The course focuses on: (1) engaging a client system in a relationship, (2) assessing the problem situation, (3) setting intervention goals and objectives, (4) selecting effective implementation strategies, (5) evaluating the results of interventions and (6) terminating the client-worker relationship. The contribution of this course to the overall core foundation/advanced curriculum will be addressed.
