Family Policy in the U.K. and the U.S.

Examine the similarities and differences of family policies (such as marriage, foster care and adoption, child custody, divorce, family economic support, and family care-giving) and policy making the U.S. and U.K. Investigate the policies governing the definition of family and the rights and duties family members to each other and the larger society.

The study abroad experience is taught both online and in London.
