CFS 312U Families in Lifecourse Perspective

This course offers a deeper understanding of family life and its intersection with individual development across the lifespan. Life Course Theory will provide the foundation for understanding the dynamic experiences of families as we explore physical, social/emotional, and cognitive development from birth to death. Students will have the opportunity to critically process developmental theories through lecture, discussion, videos, and assignments. There will be a focus on issues of diversity, anti-oppression, and social justice.
