SOC1000 Approaches to the Social Sciences
Students will require access to e-mail and have internet access to UConnect for this course.
Students will be introduced to a range of social science theories and disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, psychology, law, environmental studies and indigenous studies. These disciplines will also be used to define and provide solutions to a complex social problem, which will be introduced early in the course. The approaches will be theoretical rather than methodological, as the latter will be covered in other courses in the Social Science core. Students will apply these theoretical approaches each week to the selected social problem. The major assignment involves an evaluation of the various disciplinary approaches to the selected social problem.
