8th - 10th July 2022

Residential (3 days, 2 nights)


This course looks at the role that communities play in our lives and in society. We will think about what we learn from being part of communities as we develop as people, and about how and why communities have changed as the world changes around us. The course will use ideas from sociology to consider different views on how people interact with one another as neighbours and how other factors such as employment, housing, family structures and immigration might impact upon our social networks.

During this course we will use sociological ideas to think about how social interaction is part of our society and our individual identities.  We will think about how changes in society affect the ways we interact with those around us.  

After this course you will understand the role of community and neighbour interaction in our social development, social changes that affect communities and be able to explore different ways of analysing communities and neighbours

This course is for anyone interested in careers in social and public sectors or further study in social sciences
