FAMS 361 American Families in Poverty
The course studies the influence of socioeconomic status of family life. The focus is to help students develop an understanding of poverty and the issues that families living below the poverty line face within this culture. Other social problems as they relate and are influenced by poverty are discussed, as well as programs and policies to help families. Students complete a two week experimental exercise on poverty, written journals, a research and policy paper on family life and poverty, and essay exam questions. (LA, WS2)
