HDFS 715. Youth Culture. 3 Credits.

This course examines youth as a culture, and youth culture within multiple contexts (education, peers, work, sports, family, technology, music, media, politics, and activism). Students will think critically about how society supports and restricts youth culture, and gain further knowledge of how ethnic groups fit historically into society and how history has shaped current youth culture. Students will address biases and myths about youth and explore the social and educational processes experienced by youth through in-depth reading, writing, discussion, critical listening, viewing of contemporary videos, and informal interviews with youth.
