SOWK1015 Social Dimensions of Human Societies (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
The course is intended to introduce students basic concepts and knowledge of human societies with particular emphases placed on sociological perspectives and social issues situated within urban contexts. Insight into human societies comes from many different sources: agency versus structure, micro versus macro, local versus global, etc. This course is concerned with an introductory and interdisciplinary understanding of human societies where people live and experience in their everyday life. Acquiring a brief yet critical understanding of different aspects and processes of human societies including certain social issues can enable students to identify the nature of the relationship and dynamics between individuals/groups and society particularly with respect to urban and cosmopolitan contexts like Hong Kong.
