Course Description

How do people respond to a serious disease outbreak such as SARS? What communication methods do protesters use to bypass government-controlled media? How can violent crime be reduced and our neighbourhoods made safer? What impact do social inequalities have on opportunities? Questions like these are at the heart of social science, which is the study of society and the relationships among individuals.

This course will help you gain the insights into the science of people, places and social problems. With the skills you'll develop in social research and applied social science, you'll be prepared to make valuable contributions to some of the world's biggest issues.
