The module challenges students to examine current and emerging social issues in Singapore. Due to complex social and technological changes that societies are experiencing, human beings are forced to adapt rapidly, with negative consequences in many instances. The social issues that arise as a result need to be understood and addressed by people at large. Students will learn to appreciate the implications of these issues for individuals, families and communities. Some of the topics covered are child protection, juvenile delinquency, and needs of older people. The module is mounted for the benefit of students from all faculties.
