Description

This course introduces the student to the sociological aspects of marriage and family life in contemporary American society. Emphasis is on the study of cognitive, emotional and behavioral patterns associated with courtship, love, mate selection, sexuality and marriage. Moreover, it discusses the life span development in the family life cycle, balancing work and family and parenting. This course is based on the premise that human attitudes, feelings and behaviors are largely shaped and influenced by philosophy, gender, communication and personal beliefs. Therefore, success in the institutions of marriage and family require knowledge and skills in the roles of spouse and parent and ways to apply concepts to daily life.
