Posted on

 

From the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement to the historically divisive 2016 presidential election, there’s never a better time to discuss social issues.  SOCY 201 – Social Problems in American Society provides you with the chance to understand issues such as race and ethnic conflict, criminal justice reform, social justice, and economic inequality.

How will the President-Elect’s policies affect Americans of different races and religions?

What is the future of the Black Lives Matter movement?

How do we come together as a country in a time when we have never been more divided?

Offered online (and designed for any field of study) SOCY 201 fulfills Social Sciences GEP, explores how social problems develop and how such problems can be solved while encouraging informed and meaningful discourse in a safe environment.
