Building a Better Future World: Poverty

Poverty, inequality, and a consideration of whose voices are being included in policy decisions affecting our society are just a few of the issues that confront us today. Is equity for all possible or is it a figment of our imagination? In Building a Better Future World: Poverty, students will be introduced to the principles, theories, and methodology of psychology, while exploring how their study of poverty as a factor in their own lives move us towards building a better future world. Students will explore strategies and solutions, and wrestle with the question, can we really make a difference?

 

Building a Better Future World: Sustainability & Technology

Overpopulation, climate change, and water shortages are just a few of the global challenges that confront us. Is a sustainable future possible or is it a figment of our imagination? In Building a Better Future World: Sustainability & Technology, students will investigate how urban planning and our historic and present relationship with technology can offer ideas for building a better future world. Students will explore strategies and solutions, and wrestle with the question, can we really make a difference?
