Aim of this Course

Learners will be exposed to different types of social stratification and inequality. Learners will have the opportunity to explore the influence of stratification on the life chances of individuals and groups in society, and the opportunities for social mobility. Subject content will cover different forms of stratification, sociological theories of stratification, various structural factors, such as gender and ethnicity, as sources of differentiation, and social mobility. Learners will be guided to investigate this content in relation to inequalities in society and to critically evaluate the ‘egalitarian’ rationale that underpins ‘open’ democratic societies.
