Family: Past, Present, Future | Deborah Phelps & Mary Beth Ohlms
Catholic Social Teaching suggests the family is the most important social institution, the basic building block of humanity. This Dedicated Semester takes a broad, interdisciplinary perspective on practical, theoretical, and political topics related to families. It will offer opportunities to examine the history of the family and its role in education, religious formation, socialization, economic structures, and emotional development. We’ll explore traditional, changing, and families of choice and the challenges they face now and in the future.
