PSYC 273 - Contemporary Issues Child &Soc
As part of the course cluster’s 3rd module, students may also enroll in one or more special topic seminars we offer.  These seminars focus on contemporary and pressing issues in children’s health, mental health, family life, and society at large. They are intended to offer students a deeper exploration of risks and resiliencies navigated by children and society. Seminar topics can range from school and community violence, to cyber-bullying and suicide prevention, to homelessness and LGBTQ youth, to pediatric chronic health conditions and quality of life, to learning differences and special education, to adolescent substance use and prevention, and more. In the Fall of 2016, the seminar focuses on autism spectrum disorders and developmental disabilities. In combination with 2 other 1 credit modules from the CC&S course series these 3 credits can be bundled to make a course. For psychology majors this bundled course meets the requirement of the area 1/2 requirement for majors and minors. See also UNXP200, 201, 202 for more information on Challenges in Childhood and Society course modules.  It is possible for students to enroll in all 4 modules.
