Editor's Notes

  • Sociologie is de studie die actuele maatschappelijke problemen en trends vanuit een wetenschappelijk perspectief bekijkt. Dit betekent dat je op basis van onderzoek nagaat wat er feitelijk speelt en wat daarvan de oorzaken en gevolgen zijn. Daarbij kun je denken aan thema’s als immigratie en integratie, criminaliteit, inkomensongelijkheid, vergrijzing en de opkomst van het internet.
  • Rationalisering: Samenlevingen veranderen voortdurend. Maar waarom? En wat zijn de gevolgen?
  • Voorbeeld: neighbourhood and health
    Claim: people living in a good neighbourhood have better health

    P (WAT-vraag):
    Is dat zo?
  • Welke beroepen kun je uitoefenen met Sociologie, wat kun je worden?
    Aan de zaal vragen wat ze verwachten te gaan doen als Sociologie. Heeft de zaal daar al ideeën over?
