The detailed information about the course content, course objectives and the evaluation techniques used to assess students' learning are provided in the attached course syllabus. For the purpose of this proposal, I have highlighted the areas of relevance by using bold-faced print. In addition, I have included the following two paragraphs to briefly explain how the course meets the requirements of the Social Science block.
The first topic of the course is an introduction to social science
theories and research methods. Students are required to demonstrate
that they understand different types of research methods
The next topic is an exploration of individual differences in development
and in learning, which helps students to understand individual and
social behavior. Further topics include multi-cultural groups and
special needs populations. The influence of differences in genders,
Overall, the course objectives listed in the course syllabus will be met through the course content, teaching activities and course evaluations. These objectives clearly reflect the criteria of Social Science Block.
