Learning outcomesAfter successful completion of this unit, students will be able to: 1. Demonstrate familiarity with some of the contributions of sociology to understanding contemporary society;
2. Identify and analyse some of the social processes that are constitutive of our social worlds and those of others, and how those social worlds interact with experience, self-identities and life-choices;
3. Apply sociological concepts to make sense of society and to develop confidence in thinking critically and reflexively about the social explanations and understandings we use and encounter;
4. Creatively use sociological imagination to explore, respond to, and negotiate complex social experiences where we are confronted by new freedoms but also by often bewildering social changes; and
5. Recognise, find, mobilise and critically engage sociological information and texts in your writing practice to sustain your own sociological argument.
