The School of Social Work at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale is offering a Study Abroad based in Munich, Germany beginning January 4, ending on January 12, 2013. This course examines human rights within a social work framework, from both European and US perspectives. Field visits and course instruction focuses on political and social human rights, with an emphasis on defining human rights principles as they apply to social work. The Munich, Germany location highlights the importance of human rights within our current environment, as contemporary human rights arose from the history of this part of the world.
Participants in the course have the opportunity to explore concepts of human rights that apply to their own experiences, as well as historical events. This course is ideal for undergraduate or graduate students and professionals interested in learning about different approaches to social problems within a human rights perspective.
