Course objectives: Upon completion of the course, a master student should gain insight into one of the basic theoretical themes of sociological, psychological, pedagogical and andragogical considerations - the subject of education, from the perspective of sociology as a discipline. The course aims to sensitize students to the idea that education should be viewed not only through the one-dimensional prism of pedagogy/andragogy/psychology/ sociology as scientific disciplines, but through a wider interdisciplinary prism, a part of which (sociological approach to education) is the focus of this course.

Course description: Theoretical instruction The course does not aim at employing an all-encompassing historiographical approach to the development of the sociology of education as a science, but rather focuses on the following: a) the analysis of the most significant theoretical and methodological paradigms through which sociologists observe the phenomenon of education, within the sociological tradition and contemporary sociological trends b) examining a few most significant theoretical themes and problems that contemporary sociology of education deals with c) recognizing their theoretical and methodological influences on other subdisciplines of sociology, and other, more or less related social sciences. Practical instruction: In practical sessions students will be encouraged to apply the knowledge gained through lectures to the analysis of texts of concrete scientific research studies.

Learning Outcomes: To enable students to view education-related themes from a sociological perspective.
