Cultural reproduction is the transmission of existing cultural values and norms from generation to generation. Cultural reproduction often results in social reproduction , or the process of transferring aspects of society such as class from generation to generation. Reproduction as it is applied to culture, is the process by which aspects of culture are passed on from person to person or from society to society.

For centuries cultural reproduction has occurred in a profound way through a hidden agenda. Cultures transmit aspects of behavior which individuals learn in an informal way while they are out of the home. This interaction between individuals resulting in the transfer of accepted cultural norms, values, and information is accomplished through a process known as socialization.
