SWRK - 255. Social Policy Without Borders


3 credit(s)
This Franciscan Concern Social Justice course will examine social policy in a global context by focusing on two distinct, but related areas of inquiry. In the first half of the course, students will learn about theories of the welfare state, and - through comparative analysis - about the similarities and differences between selected social welfare systems in economically developed globalization on national social policies and social welfare provisions in both developed and developing countries, particularly in the areas of social governance, labor policy, health policy, pensions, and migration. This course is not about global social problems or about globalization generally, as these topics are covered in courses offered by other departments. Rather, “Social Policy Without Borders” is about the structures, especially the formal/institutional ones, that aim to secure the wellbeing of people within nation states and as global citizens. SWRK 255 includes a 2-day trip to Montreal. Students are responsible for the extra fee of approximately $250, which will cover transportation and lodging (exact cost will depend on the number of students enrolled in the course). Students will also be required to have a valid passport or enhanced driver’s license.
