Course summary

Sociology developed with the modern world and its key task is to analyse the changing nature of our social world. You will study important aspects of the real world that are complex and challenging such as inequality, violence, unfairness, or injustice. This is done through examining social change, globalization, migration, gender and sexuality, technology and social theory.
