Family in a Changing Singapore
Ms Sue Chang-Koh
Family is often considered the foundation of society. Families affect the way we live, play, and work, shaping our values and how we relate to others. In this course, students will investigate and engage with issues that surround and define what it means to be a Singaporean family in the 21st century. They will look at issues such as broken and single parent families, foster care, family leisure, family businesses etc – through economic, social, and psychological perspectives. The course emphasises experiential learning and application of readings outside the classroom through field trips, guest speakers and discussions/interviews with families and communities.

1. Because the experience of each course will differ according to the professor teaching the course, at the start of your review, please state the semester taken and the name of the professor who taught the course in that semester.
2. Other students will read your review to get an idea of what taking the course will be like and this may affect their course registration choices. As such, please maintain objectivity when leaving your review and take note that we will go through a moderation process before reviews get posted.
3. The experiences alleged in these reviews have not been verified by CAPT or CAPT Courses. Please take all anecdotes with a grain of salt.
