FYS 101 Homelessness

This course is designed to introduce students to academic research and problem-solving skills through an exploration of homelessness. The course will approach the subject using statistics and research method skills as students gather, evaluate, and present data on homelessness. Students will even contribute to a survey on homelessness by working with a non-profit or government agency. Teams will be given responsibility for aspects of survey design, implementation, and analysis. Readings will guide students through this social issue from an economical, sociological, anthropological and political perspective.
