Foundations in Family Studies
This course will introduce students to the trans-disciplinary field of Family Studies from global perspectives. Students will explore the concept of family from macro and micro analyses of family processes and through stages across the lifespan. Students will gain an understanding of various theoretical and research approaches to the study of family. Importantly, students will gain an understanding of the relevance and application of various perspectives on family in varied cultural and national contexts. At the end of this course students will have an understanding of the way in which theoretical perspectives inform models of practice and intervention in work with families and will have begun to articulate their own perspective on working in the field in their professional discipline area.
