Program Details

The Bachelor of Arts in Community Advocacy and Social Policy through the School of Social Work is designed to offer you the opportunity to explore issues of diversity, oppression, and privilege and to examine advocacy and intervention strategies to engage in social change.

As a student enrolled in the BA CASP online program, you will focus on advocacy strategies by exploring, analyzing, and comparing social service systems and policies in depth and from an empowerment perspective. You will learn to develop critical analyses of social policies and study how to create, implement, and evaluate advocacy strategies. Policy analysis and social change will be critical themes in developing an advocacy knowledge base, as they are equally important themes of prevention and social well-being.
Students will complete courses in two core sequence areas: the Diversity/Oppressed Populations Sequence focuses on oppressed or marginalized populations and systems of oppression/privilege, and the Social Problems and Interventions Sequence focuses on social problems that disproportionately affect members of an oppressed population and change strategies.
With a degree in Community Advocacy and Social Policy, you will be prepared for positions in the social services arena, including social action; campaign work; community advocacy and policy; basic case management; staffing hotlines or warmlines; referral, recruitment, and volunteer coordinator positions; and, prevention and education efforts in a variety of settings. This degree will also prepare you to pursue graduate education.
