SOCI 203: Social Issues Communication

Through this course, students will sociologically examine selected global social issues and how they are communicated in a religious and moral context: religious freedom and plurality, the divide between the secular and religion, women’s issues, abortion and euthanasia, just war doctrine, and globalization. Students will start by examining different sociological accounts on these matters, and will enter in dialogue with the teachings of the Catholic Church as well as that from other religious perspectives including Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam.
