SOC 210 Social Welfare: Social Workers, Activists, Bureaucrats

If you want to help people and make the world a better place, you need institutions to work through. This course examines the institutions through which we try to improve social welfare. Social welfare encompasses everything from the micro level of social workers giving hands-on assistance to people in need; through the mezzo level of local government and charities; to the macro level of non-profits advocating social policy, and state and national government agencies administering programs to help and develop people.
