Social Science for Honors Students I

Development of an idea, concept, or institution central to the social sciences. Content varies from year to year. For University Honors Program students only. Offered: A.

Class description

Due to space constraints in the classroom and the commencement of group projects, the instructor requested that registration for this course be closed as of 3:30pm on October 4. Anyone who registers after this will be unregistered and removed from the class list on October 5.

Student learning goals

1) Students will understand the scope, scale, and complex dynamics of human trafficking.

2) Students will be equipped to assess the current state of anti-human trafficking efforts with appreciation for the difficulty of such efforts, and to begin strategizing more and better ways to combat human trafficking.

General method of instruction

These learning objectives for this course will be accomplished through a) the reading, written analysis of, and in-class discussion of relevant texts produced by concerned government bodies and nongovernmental organizations as well as scholars; b) visits by local experts representing local and/or national law enforcement, providers of services to trafficking victims, and community organizers; c) written analyses of case studies and a research paper on a particular aspect of the problem of human trafficking and/or efforts to combat it; d) completion of a service learning assignment. There will be a few small quizzes on key terms/concepts, but no midterm or final exam.
