SOC 201 – Social Problems

Every society faces problems that are more than just individual troubles.  In this course we will use a sociological perspective to critically examine the bases of social inequality and the resultant problems in society. We will explore concerns related to families, education, the workplace, the media, poverty, crime, drug abuse, health issues, war and terrorism, the environment and global concerns.  We will also look at social action and possible solutions to these problems through both individual and community efforts.
