SOC 361 - Family Diversity: Forms and Functions

Credits: 3
This course will provide an overview of current concepts, theories, and substantive issues in family studies from a sociological (and in some ways interdisciplinary) perspective. Attention is given to variation in family form and function across different social/cultural contexts and how family experience is structured by gender, race and religion. Issues of family development (such as marriage, parenting, divorce, remarriage, aging family) and the links between families and societal trends are explored.
Cross-listed: HDFS-361
