Cursusdoelen

At the end of this question, the students will be able to:

  • Describe how sociological questions differ from those in other disciplines and specifically contrast the sociological perspective with individual perspectives on human behavior;

  • Formulate different types of sociological questions (e.g., descriptive, theoretical, and application question);

  • Formulate sociological questions related to the overarching themes of culture, social relations, or inequality;

  • Derive testable hypotheses based on sociological theories related to the themes of culture, social relations, or inequality.

Inhoud
The course consists of two seminars per week (hence, attendance is mandatory). Though short introduction to the different topics will be provided by the lecturer, the seminars will be mostly based on (student-led) discussion of the assigned literature (2-4 book chapters or articles per seminar). 

A wide-range of prominent for sociologists topics will be discussed, such as family, gender, education, poverty and inequality, race and ethnicity, religion, crime and deviance, group formation and intergroup relations. The goal in all of these discussions will be to demonstrate to the students how a sociologist would approach the study of these topics (i.e., what is it like to 'think like a sociologist'?).

At the end of the course, the students will write a short research proposal on a topic of their choosing, demonstrating their ability to formulate sociologically relevant research questions.
