URBST 237 - Social Welfare Policy
Social Welfare Policy
This course examines our government's efforts to address social-economic problems relating to poverty. After an historical overview of the development of welfare programs in this country, the course focuses on measures taken to combat poverty in the contemporary context. Issues such as the relation of welfare to work, teen pregnancy, single-parent households, and immigration are addressed. While the course primarily emphasizes basic income maintenance, it provides a survey of the network of social welfare policies and programs that have been developed in recent years.
