Macro Concentration

Co-Chairs:  Joan Davitt, PhD, MSW and Tamara Hicks, PhD, MSW
The Macro concentration seeks to develop new and better services, social programs, and social policies. Macro social work practice includes community organizing and development, social planning, policy analysis and development, political and social action, advocacy and government and nonprofit agency administration and resource development. Advanced field practicum for Macro students includes opportunities to engage in program development, community organizing, legislative advocacy, employee assistance, and grass-roots leadership development. Many of these field placements include stipends.

Secondary Concentration Option
It is also possible to elect a secondary concentration in conjunction with a primary one. A secondary concentration will expose the student to some of the content from the other concentration through study in two courses.

A student interested in this educational plan would satisfy all of the requirements for either the clinical or Macro concentration, including the diversity requirement. The student would also complete two courses from the other concentration. Thirty-six advanced credits are required at a minimum. Students choosing a secondary concentration must develop their plan of study carefully.
