Abstract


Personal and social empowerment is one of the important issues of social work disicipline and these features comply with sociopolitical control. Sociopolitical control is the belief of a person on whether he/she can change the social and political systems around her/him. Therefore a person with high sociopolitical control also has strong belief that he/she can cause change. Hence it’s important to learn the degree of sociopolitical levels of social work students at social work departments aiming to educate social workers who will work as change agent for social and political changes. To this end,this research aims to analyse socio-political levels of social work students as well as university students according to some variables. According to research findings students who are members of NGOs(non-govermental organizations) and who have volunteered for a cause have higher socio-political control scores. Also being a member of political parties, working actively for a political party, habit of newspaper reading and following current events are positively related to high socio-political control scores.
