Study Abroad Courses

Overview

As part of NYU's Global Network University, students have several opportunities to participate in study abroad courses. Through immersion in local cultures and societies, students are able to experience social work as a global profession. Silver Faculty and Field instructors developed each program to examine social policy and practice, framed by the location’s social, political, and economic issues to give students a deeper understanding of diverse cultures.

Through an international lens, students can focus on:

  • Advanced clinical theory
  • Community engagement
  • Health and social welfare issues
  • Social justice and social movement
  • Global mental health
  • Substance Abuse
  • Trauma
  • Policy
  • Advocacy

Through the global experience, students are encouraged to reflect on social conditions and the multicultural values, ethics, ideologies, and approaches required for social work practice.
