FMST-1113 Introduction to Family Studies
A comprehensive introduction to the subjects which comprise the study of human development and family betterment. It covers, in very general terms, the spectrum from conception to death and takes a general look at professional possibilities within this broad field. The research base of the discipline is introduced as the student learns the difference between research-based and expository publication. Common statistical terms are studied so that the student can read research journals with elementary understanding. This course is normally offered every semester.
