FSW 660 Family Diversity in the United States (3)

The focus of this course is diversity. There is great diversity among families in the United States, not only structure (single-parent, stepfamilies), race/ethnicity (Asian-American, Hispanic), religion (Catholic, Muslin), and immigrant status (illegal, recent, native born), but also in social class, sexuality, sexual orientation, health/disabilities, number of children, parenting, care for dependent members, school readiness and many other functional, structure, and "categorical" ways. In this course each student will pick one topic to explore in depth, become an "expert" and share this knowledge with the rest of the class.
