SOCW 537

Environmental Justice and Social Work

Units: 1.5

Environmentalism has gained prominence in social work scholarship and earlier practice models that ignored the physical environment are now critiqued. Students enter with political allegiance to green issues; educators find compatibility between professional practice and views on spirituality, environmental justice, and social service provision. Fears over environmental destruction and a general sense of disconnection from nature are finding traction. Students will explore these themes through the lenses of race, space, and environmental justice.
