There are three primary social theories (functionalism, conflict
theory, and symbolic interactionism) which are used to evaluate social
problems. In this discussion board, you are to evaluate the chosen
issue/problem that you identified for your Capstone Project from these
perspectives. Describe how a functionalist, a conflict theorist, and
someone ascribing to symbolic interactionism would explain the key issue
and the factors that have led to this issue.
Remember that you can draw on what you have learned from your
previous courses as well as acceptable academic sources to refresh your
memory on these theories and then apply them to your selected issue.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support
