    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course sparked my interest in the field of Family Studies and has since encouraged me to declare Family Studies my second major. The topic of this class is human resources, which many people immediately find boring. However, this class dives further into what family resources really are and how incredibly important they are in the lives of everyone, not just few. Access to adequate food, shelter, safety, education, and community resources is a hugely contributing factor in the outlook of any young person's future. And, as today's youth are tomorrow's leaders, human resources is a topic that should be widely studied and considered throughout life.

    Course highlights:

    By taking this course, I learned that where a person lives is not a matter of choice, but a matter of privilege, and, sometimes, plain luck. Many families become stuck in a neighborhood that cannot meet one or more of their needs. Thousands of families live in "food deserts" where they are unable to have access to markets that provide fresh and/or healthy food options. These food deserts force families to feed their family through fast food joints and other unhealthy, cheap options which in turn add to the country's growing percentage of obesity. Aside from food, many neighborhoods are entirely unsafe and do not allow for children to grow into their full potential. While many people think these families need to just "move away", they do not understand that moving is simply not an option for most families. These issues need to be heard and more people need to become educated on these matters in order to help future generations. This course has helped me to become one of those people that is here to help.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes and pay attention. Do not skip class. The slideshows shown in class will account for most of the information given on the test. Be specific in your short answers and essays and bring in outside examples to show you understand the material. And, as always, study hard.
