IDS Approved Courses From Other Departments - Community Socio-Economic Development SLWK 6365   Community Socio-Economic Development
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This course explores socio-economic communities and regions that are economically disadvantaged with high rates of poverty and underemployment. It examines the leading theoretical frameworks that seek to explain high rates of poverty and unemployment, the policy-strategy directions that occur, and current attempts to achieve socio-economic development. This course addresses two contradictory tendencies: (1) the intensification of neo-liberalism and growing social inequalities and (2) the growing interest in improving the quality of life for communities by utilizing their strengths.
