SOC 210 - Marriage and the Family
Provides students with competing sociological perspectives supported by research data on the advantages and disadvantages of diverse family structures. Emphasis is placed on the ongoing debate within the discipline on whether the traditional family is on a continued state of decline or if the family is changing to meet the demands of the modern world.
