3. Course contents *

The fist section 'sociology of education focuses primarily on an introduction to sociology. Attention is paid to the basic sociological concepts and analytical frameworks. This background is necessary to go then deeper to  sub-domain sociology of education. Here concepts are provided that allow us to understand the dynamics of the educational field. The sociological framework will be applied on two themes: inequality and lifelong learning (including the role of education in the knowledge society).
