General introduction to sociology: some key concepts, key thinkers and key perspectives.

Readings in school, society, gender and education by diverse theorists will be undertaken. The course will include field visits and audio-visual films. Students will be required to make presentations on reading materials assigned to them and hand-in written assignments. They will be assessed on the basis of these presentations and assignments.
