The aim of the module is to introduce students to sociology and to encourage critical (and self- reflective) thinking about social issues through readings on social inequalities, citizenship, poverty, homelessness and the welfare state. Students are also expected to develop their reading skills concerning difficult theoretical texts. The course might be of special interest to those who are interested in undergraduate studies in sociology, social policy, social work, public policy, international studies or political science.
