Sociology of Education – Çetin Çelik

The course is designed as a reading and discussion course in the form of interactive and vivid sessions. Preparation by reading the texts and participation in discussion is required. By attending this course, students will develop a comprehensive understanding of discussions on the relationships between education and society and its different streams and competing perspectives. Throughout the course, we will deal with the questions such as “how are education and social stratification related?” “What is the real ideology of education?” How does education create social inequalities?” “why do parents invest into their children’ education economically and emotionally?”
