APSY 3310 Contemporary Issues in Applied Psychology and Human Development (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This advanced undergraduate seminar course will focus on heightened income inequality and poverty in the U.S. Studying social views, empirical evidence, and social policies, the course will consider the extent of income inequality, its causes, and the effects it has on children, families, and communities, as well as mechanisms to stem the roots or repercussions of inequality. As a senior capstone seminar, this course will be innovative and demanding, run using a problem-based learning (PBL) format to explore the integration of social science and social policy to understand complex social phenomena, delineate repercussions for human development, and create innovate solutions to vexing societal challenges.
