Professor Katherine Stavrianopoulos
Intimate relationships with others are central aspects of our lives. They can bring us great joy when they go well but cause great sorrow when they go poorly. Therefore, it’s useful to understand how they start, how they operate, how they thrive, and how they can end in a haze of anger and pain. In this course you will be introduced to the concepts, principles and trends in relationship science and will learn to apply these to relationships you have observed, read about, and experienced. By examining scholarly articles, non-fiction texts, film clips and constructing case studies, students will become more critical, analytical, and thoughtful when it comes to intriguing topics like attraction, love, and effective communication.
