SW 361 - Social Problems and Public Policy Environment

Credits 3
Recommended prior coursework: ECON-105, PS-120, SOC-120. Poverty, sexism, racism, crime, drug abuse and family breakups are examples of the major problems that increasingly concern our society. At the same time, government's responsibility to deal with these problems has become widely expected. This course acquaints students with the major social problems that have emerged in recent years and familiarizes them with the social policies that have been devised in an attempt to alleviate or remedy these problems. In doing so, this course seeks to stimulate a concern about the justice and equity of such policies on individuals and groups in our society.
