This 15-credit course follows on from level-one sociology. It is designed to highlight the ways that sociological theory informs the research endeavour, not only the questions sociologists raise, but also the particular modes through which we go about investigating them. The module examines these points in relation to a range of micro-level topics – bodies and eating, sex and gender, the emotions, the life course, and death and dying – all of which emphasise the nature of human interaction and sociological efforts to understand it.
|Session||First Sub Session||Credit Points||15 credits (7.5 ECTS credits)|
