Course Description

This course offers an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the complex problem of homelessness. Drawing on literature from Canada and the U.S., issues which underlie homelessness, the various ways in which these may be manifested, the ever changing characteristics of these populations, and the policy responses aimed at resolving issues are explored. The current state of statistical information, the views of frontline service providers and advocates, and the differing paradigms embedded in the various disciplines represented will form the basis for debate and shared learning. (Formerly IST 908.)

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
