WGS 353 Single Motherhood (Community-Based Learning Course)

This course examines the cultural ideologies, institutions, and public policies that affect single women's experience of motherhood, with particular attention to the challenges faced by teenage and low-income single mothers. This is a community-based learning and research seminar; outside of class time, students will interact regularly with local teen moms, families living in transitional housing shelters, and/or non-profit agencies that support these women and their children-then engage in collaborative research or activist projects designed to support these members of the Easton community.
