This subject will focus on social development as a process of social change designed to promote the wellbeing of a population as a whole. It is also an approach to social welfare which offers an effective developmental response to the situation of socially and economically deprived populations. It will emphasise elements of international social work and social welfare practice useful for socio-economic development such as self-help, mutual aid, conscientization, institution building, community social capital and developing community capacity.
