At the bottom of this page is the revised UCS course flyer for Spring 2023. Here are a few key changes since last weeks edition.
HIST/URBN 2541, Urban History – a Core in the major – was added to the schedule on Tuesday and Thursday in the afternoon.
URBN 3998, Variable Topics course on Urban Farming will be offered this spring. This course is not offered every year, so please be sure to take it this spring if you are interested in the topic. The course meets a UCS’ Supporting requirement.
Sociology of Carework, SOCI 2995 – will be offered this spring in Hartford. We all need carework, including a variety of emotional and supportive resources, both paid and unpaid. However, for children, the elderly, disabled persons, and those with short and long-term illnesses, carework is essential. Carework takes place in a variety of contexts, from community groups to people’s homes, to facilities like daycare centers, hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers. Through this course, students will gain an understanding of the various forces that shape the social organization of carework through an examination of scholarly research, multimedia, and a recent memoir.
SOCI 3201, Methods of Social Research will be offered in Hartford and Stamford via Distance Learning. UCS majors in Storrs or Waterbury who may need a Methods course or would like to take this course should reach out to their UCS advisor for further information or possible guidance on attaining a permission number.
New course offering – GEOG 3000, Race, Sex, Space, and Place
