Human Rights Education: Is Social Work behind the Curve?
Steen, Julie A.; Mathiesen, Sally
Journal of Teaching in Social Work, v25 n3-4 p143-156 2005
This article presents a descriptive assessment of human rights education within schools of social work and law. A review of course titles and descriptions within MSW programs and law programs was conducted for identification of human rights content. The results suggest a dearth of human rights content in social work curricula and a great disparity between schools of social work and schools of law in the integration of human rights in graduate level education. Recommendations for further development of human rights education are provided. (Contains 3 tables.)
