SHS 319: Global Social Problems

Credits 4

Our modern world is closely linked through trade, travel, and cutting‐edge communication tools, and as such we have the ability to examine global issues like never before.  This course will explore social problems across ever‐more permeable international boundaries, and within specific regions of the world.  Focus will be placed on contemporary issues concerning social justice and inequality, gender, terrorism, migration, urban conditions, and global climate change.  Students will be required to demonstrate in‐depth knowledge of, and critically evaluate, one issue.
