Military Families And Culture Specialization - Master of Social Work (MSW)

Military Families and Culture

Active military personnel and combat veterans face a variety of emotional challenges brought on by frequent relocations, separation from family, and experiences at war. In some instances, the strain of combat-related stress can lead to substance abuse, homelessness, or other social issues. The courses in this elective cluster help you develop an understanding of military culture and the short- and long-term effects of post-traumatic stress disorder. You also will have an opportunity to explore how family members are affected by a loved one’s combat-related experiences. With this cluster, you can better prepare to address the various needs of armed forces personnel and veterans.
