Sociology 102: The Family


Course Information:

This course will provide students with an overview of
the sociological perspective on the institution of family. Both historical and contemporary aspects of singlehood, courtship, mate selection, love, cohabitation, marriage, and divorce will be examined. Components of family life including gender socialization, parenting styles, communication, and conflict resolution will be analyzed using various theoretical perspectives. Emphasis will be placed on examining diverse family structure and relationships as well as how family experiences are shaped by social class, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation.

GRADING SCALE
1. The student who achieves the highest number of points on each method of evaluation sets the curve (starts the "A's") for that particular task. The highest number of points achieved equals 100% and the grades are then calculated as follows:
90-100% = A; 80-89%=B; 70-79% = C; 60-69% = D

2. This grading system will also be used to determine final grades which are based upon the highest number of points acquired for the entire semester.
