Identify a Problem
Being able to properly apply concepts from class and address multiple facets of a problem depends upon your understanding of the problem at hand. The following reference resources provide multiple perspectives from scholars on current issues. If you have an issue in mind, take a look at a relevant encyclopedia. If not, browse the Table of Contents for an issue that stands out to you. Remember, there are always additional suggestions for reading at the end of a reference entry, so you can pursue additional information for any gaps in your understanding.
For additional help, please feel free to contact Jess, the social sciences librarian.
