SOC 212 - Families, Couples and Singles, 3 credit hours


Have you ever wondered about the “health” of today’s family? The meaning of the word itself is changing, as are the circumstances around it in society. This course presents an analysis of family life and the historical development of the family through the examination of comparative family organizations in various societies. A review of recent research in American family structure is undertaken to discover the strengths, weaknesses and the future of various types of domestic lifestyles, including living together couples, single-parent families and other alternative forms. Social policies are also explored in this class.
