SYS 35000 - Systems Theories And Approaches


Credit Hours: 3.00. Engineers, social scientists, and managers frequently bring people and technology together to address complex problematic situations in an equitable way that benefits people and the environment. Multiple systems theories and methods have been developed to address these situations, and typical courses in systems focus on a relatively small portion of the rich assortment of available approaches to addressing systems problems. This course introduces students to multiple systems theories and methods via readings, class discussion, reflective writing assignments, and selected case studies. The course will emphasize critical thinking about how the theories and methods relate to each other and how they might be applied individually and in combination to address complex problematic situations. Typically offered Fall Spring Summer.
