1 credit

The Social Work Skills Lab I is a 1-credit, 6-week hybrid class that includes three weeks of online content, followed by a 3-day intensive experience (available face-to-face or virtually), and then closes with two weeks of online content. The Social Work Skills Lab I course reinforces the content covered in the MSW Foundation Year courses with an emphasis on generalist skills development, diversity and inclusion, evidence-based practice, ethics, and development of the professional self. Material covered includes practice labs focused on individual engagement and assessment, group development and leadership, and an understanding of how to advocate within organizations and communities. A key component of the skills lab is to prepare and assess students for their readiness to enter the field.
