Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course aims to introduce students to major theoretical approaches, contemporary debates and empirical findings in the sociology of education.

We will discuss the role of education in reducing (or increasing) inequalities; the different axes of social inequality and their effects on education and school performance, with particular reference to inequalities in terms of social class, migration background and gender; emerging challenges; among others.

In addition, the impact of covid-19 pandemic and the latest empirical results in the field of education will be discussed.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Important Grading Information:
If not explicitly noted otherwise, all requirements mentioned in the grading scheme must be met. If a required task is not fulfilled, this will be considered as a discontinuation of the course. In that case, the course will be graded as 'fail' (5), unless there is a major and unpredictable reason for not being able to fulfill the task on the student's side (e.g. a longer illness). In such a case, the student may be de-registered from the course without grading. Whether this exception applies is decided by the lecturer.
If any requirement of the course has been fulfilled by fraudulent means, be it for example by cheating at an exam, plagiarizing parts of a written assignment or by faking signatures on an attendance sheet, the student's participation in the course will be discontinued, the entire course will be graded a 'not assessed' and will be entered into the electronic exam record as ‘fraudulently obtained’.

The plagiarism-detection service (Turnitin in Moodle) can be used in course of the grading: Details will be announced by the lecturer.

In case you have received three negative assessments of a continuously assessed course and want to register for a fourth attempt, please make sure to contact the StudiesServiceUnit Sociology. (for more information see "third attempt for continuously assessed courses" https://soziologie.univie.ac.at/info/pruefungen/#c56313)
