Published on 2022 June 16th

This UCSP class module discusses that to understand social issues and critical phenomena that impact our government and community, we should learn the basics of how culture, society, and politics are connected. Social elements determine the dynamics among human beings, cultural attributes describe how traditions have formed and developed, and political actors explain power distribution across different levels. Moreover, this module helps understand the fusion and interactions of these elements, which can be compounded upon taking on perspectives based on critical social science disciplines like Anthropology, Sociology, and Political Science.
