This course is organized to facilitate students’  understanding of social problems  sociologically Through the lens of sociological perspectives,  several central issues are considered: What  makes a problem a  social  problem?  How  do we  decide what are social problems? Why do some  social problems persist? Who are the victims of  social problems? Where in the system can we  intervene to make social change?

Whereas this course will not cover all social  problems, themes such as crime and social  control, poverty and economic inequality,  work and employment, problems in  education, gender inequality, environmental  destruction, science and technology, and  conflict, war and terrorism will be discussed  from three main sociological perspectives.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
