Families Across the Life-Course
This course will introduce students to the family life course and the events and periods of time (stages) between events traversed by families in their diverse structures across the globe. Students will analyze the micro and macro factors which impact these transitions and compare the needs & issues which these diverse families across the globe face at different times in their life course.
