SOC 240 Social Problems in the U.S.

3 Credit(s) DIII CS WC
This course examines the social conditions that contribute to social problems from a critical and comparative global perspective. Students will develop an understanding of how social problems are constructed, their core causes across and within different regions and countries, and how specific problems can be mitigated from both a social structural and an individual perspective. Sociological theories and paradigms will be applied in a critical and comparative in-depth analysis of a broad series of social problems, which may include globalization, poverty, discrimination, crime, health, environment issues, war and terrorism. Three lecture hours per week.
