Integration Of Natural Science And Humanities Knowledge In Social Workers Training
At present, when the system of socio-economic and cultural interactions becomes ever more complex, specialists of a new type are needed who have accomplished a comprehensive basic training and possess fundamental knowledge. This calls for creation of such a vocational training system which will produce not the pragmatic narrow-minded specialists, but those who have methodologically invariant knowledge which forms an integral scientific outlook on the world and are conducive to personal development and adaptation of the individual to the fast-changing modern life. The main characteristic of the fundamental training is its comprehensive character which can be achieved by overcoming the fragmented contents of educational programs, by introduction of inter-disciplinary courses, by humanization of technical education and introduction of courses in natural science into humanities programs. The authors have developed the contents of an integrated course “The concept of modern natural science” which aims at formation of a scientific outlook in in future social workers. The anticipated result of taking this course should be creation of a scientific view of the world, integrated knowledge about the Nature and humans’ place in it, the system of humanistic values.
