Social Work Education in Honduras

Social Work Education in Honduras

Schools of Social Work in Honduras were easy to map as there is only one School in the country: HND Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Honduras https://cienciassociales.unah.edu.hn/  and thanks to Yolanda Molina Fonseca we were able to verify the information.

It was also not easy to find literature on social work in Honduras. Only two sources briefly mention the developments of social work in Honduras:

Negrón-Velázquez, G. (2016). Attitudes toward poverty among exit students of undergraduate social work programs in eight Latin American countries. European Journal of Social Work, 19(3–4), 385–404.

Watts, T. D., Elliott, D., & Mayadas, N. S. (Eds.). (1995). International handbook on social work education. Greenwood Publishing Group.

I hope once we complete the article on Colombia it will be exciting to research the state of social work in Honduras.
