Description
The course focuses on the nature and extent of poverty and income inequality in the United States including its causes and consequences as well as the resulting political and public policy debates and governmental efforts to combat it. The course provides a broad social science approach to understanding the intersection of gender, race, and class with poverty and income inequality. Competing theories of poverty are discussed and their relationship to different polices are assessed. The course continues with the analysis of a range of social policy debates and reform options that might further reduce poverty and income inequality. The course concludes with a discussion about the nature of social and economic justice and the role social workers and professional social work currently play and could play in taking a social action role to addressing poverty and income inequality
