Contemporary Social Problems

SOCIOL111

The primary goal of this course is not to furnish answers to contemporary social problems, because there are no easy answers. Rather we will examine the process by which social issues become social problems. This is a dynamic, often reciprocal, process. A process that involves delving into the history of the social problem, examining the roles various groups play in the creation and challenging of various social problems, and the policies aimed at addressing such problems. One course.
