Poverty at Home and Abroad

Instructor: Ryan Murphy
email:

This seminar course is designed as a service-learning course.  Service-learning is an experiential education technique that puts coursework into action through relevant service to the community.  These experiences also serve as foundations for classroom discussion and real-world synthesis of academic theory.  Beginning in week four (2/11-2/15) and continuing through the last week of classes (5/5-5/9), students will perform at least two (2) hours of community service per week at a service site to augment coursework.  Assistance will be provided finding a service site, if needed.  All sites must first be approved by the instructor.  Topics discussed will be factors surrounding global poverty including: education, trade, employment, hunger and homelessness.  By examining these issues through a global lens and drawing from student service experiences in Philadelphia, it is expected that students will connect the poverty issues facing Philadelphia with those of the global community.
