Description
Course for curious students who like to delve deeply into hot-topic current issues. The quarterly theme is determined in advance based on the results of recent student polling. Using valid sources and digital resources students explore sociological approaches to understanding diverse perspectives regarding key current issues. Examples of prospective hot topics include immigration policies, sustainability, corporate crime, prison industry, healthcare reform, war, social impact of climate change, globalization, social consequences of demographic changes (e.g. aging population), social movements, or other emerging and current social issues. Typically only one current issue, or perhaps two related ones, is closely examined each quarter. Contact the instructor for specific quarterly theme.
