Learning objectives
The aim of this course is to introduce students to the sociology of education and the economics of education, inequality of educational opportunities and social stratification and mobility, giving them theoretical and analytical tools to understand empirical results in contemporary education and labor market research. Students must also have a thorough understanding of how methodological issues in stratification research are related to theoretical concepts and substantive questions. The course consists of two modules. Although the topics addressed by each module will be very similar (e.g., determinants and consequences of educational choices), the first module will adopt a sociological, and the second an economic approach. Prerequisites: students must have a good knowledge of the main sociological theory, basic microeconomic concepts, and statistics for the social sciences.
