Social Welfare

Finalized May 2017

The social welfare program at Augustana examines societal responses to human needs and social problems. Courses evaluate systems and services established to provide for basic human needs and to enhance social functioning. Students address issues such as mental and physical health, crime, child and family welfare, and poverty. See the Sociology section of this catalog for social welfare course descriptions and the requirements for a major in sociology with a concentration in social welfare and policy.
