Program Information

This course introduces students to the sociological perspective on the American family. Both theoretical literature on family and the research process are covered, but the primary focus of the course is on encouraging critical thinking skills in studying and reading about family. Contemporary novels and articles assist students in learning to interweave the emotional experience of family (their own) with the scientific analysis of family (a social institution).
