About this course
This is a new exciting course in our Sevenoaks Adult Education Centre. Sociology can provide us with new ways to look at the world. The course will focus on the organisation of our society, look beyond individual accomplishments or problems, see the connections between people and their surroundings.
This course will introduce you to the field of sociology, providing you not only with an overview of what sociologists have done, but also with a chance to see the world from a sociological point of view. You will have a chance to look at a number of important topics in sociology: class, race, gender, sexuality, education, and culture. At the same time, you will learn about sociological understandings of important social processes: socialization, stratification, social construction.
Through this course, you will learn about what sociology does, and you will be challenged to think through contemporary issues with these new tools and analytical lenses.
