Understanding Society: A Pathway to Further Study
This course is for anyone interested in making sense of the society that we live in and how social and public policies can make a difference to people's lives.
It's an interactive course, covering a wide range of topics, from social inequalities, to the general election; September 11th to the justice system; protests, the environment, and what it really means to be part of society. The course will draw on participants' and tutors' experiences, social and conventional media, research projects, and a wide range of other sources, to inform our debate and discussions in class. There will also be opportunities to develop your study skills – including note-taking, essay writing and participating in discussion.
One evening per week from Wednesday 4th October 2017.
