Social Problems in a Global Society Concentration

The Social Problems in a Global Society concentration provides students with the background they need to understand the complexities of international social problems, such as poverty and ill health, population growth, environmental degradation, immigration, ethnic conflict, and international crime and terrorism. Students learn how worldwide systems of commerce, politics, technology, and the actions of non-profit, non-governmental organizations contribute to the causes of and to the solutions to these problems. The concentration includes courses about specific problem areas and more theoretical and general courses about international social systems. The concentration also provides students with a strong foundation in research methods and data analysis.
