As a human being, first we nee to know the human society we live in, it can be heaven by our works. Together, we made this society & if we will feel the responsibilities for any issue of social structure, only then we will be able to establish the Social Justice for all. It will come more effectively by our learning of social activities in a great extent as well as measures all the social elements that affect us greatly. Just I came in touch this course, I want to be a social worker for mankind. Thanks~Sufi Alam, Bangladesh

Excellent introduction to the history of social work and an introduction to the frameworks of Social Work Practice which will be useful in later courses or to pursue the Micromasters.
