Description - Get Set for Sociology by Ian McIntosh

This volume assumes no prior knowledge of Sociology. For students who have never studied Sociology before, it will give an idea of what to expect. For students already studying Sociology at school or college, it will provide a concise but comprehensive learning aid. It covers core topics taught in most Sociology degrees and the transferable skills that students will gain from the study of Sociology and guidance on future employment and careers. Part One introduces Sociology as an academic subject and Part Two outlines ways of theorising and researching the social world. Part Three explores sociological understandings of social change, social problems and social divisions within contemporary society. Part Four tackles the study skills needed at university level and addresses issues such as lectures and workshops; writing skills; essays and examinations. It also provides a glossary of key terms to be found in Sociology.
