ESS 20203 - Section 01: Intro to Social Problems (CRN 19287)
Long Title: Introduction to Social Problems

Course Description:
This course introduces a sociological study of some of the serious social problems plaguing society. Among these are poverty and homelessness, racial disparities, gender injustice, gross educational inequalities, interpersonal violence, and difficulties faced by prisoners upon re-entry to society. This course will give students opportunities to practice good social science by comparing theories about the causes of social problems and possible solutions to (1) empirical evidence presented in important sociological studies and (2) evidence gleaned by students through their own community-based learning experiences. To gain this first-hand knowledge, students enrolled in this course must volunteer a minimum of 20 hours during the course of the semester in a South Bend community organization dealing with one or more of these social problems.
