Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


Liberal/general education requirements in the social work curriculum are rooted in the Deweyan philosophy of education and translated into accreditation requirements. Although content from the social sciences and the humanities is usually provided separately in foundation courses, interdisciplinary perspectives can be effectively incorporated into specialized social work offerings. Because rural social work is particularly suited for such interdisciplinary teaching approaches, this article examines and illustrates criteria for infusing interdisciplinary knowledge into rural social work offerings.
