Global Immersion Program Goals
- Enhance the school’s curriculum
- Demonstrate a direct connection between the areas visited and the Southern California region
- Explore changing what we do as social work practitioners
- Provide reciprocity and student/faculty engagement with partner institutions across the globe
Each program has a specific theme connected to social work practice and/or policy and takes place during the spring semester. Immersions are led by faculty and range in size from 20 to 25 students. Participants receive three credits per program that can be applied to the MSW degree.
