About the course:

The aim of the course is that students should acquire in-depth knowledge of sociological theories and theoretical thinking and deepen their knowledge about how various theories and theoretical traditions have influenced the different specialisations.

Because sociology is a multi-paradigmatic science the main theoretical orientations and approaches are presented and analysed during the course. In sociology, a distinction is made between general theory, i.e. a theoretical interpretation of society's basic principles and theories that are designed to analyse and interpret the tangible and empirical facts within the society's various sectors and institutions. In addition, the sociological theorising also has a time diagnostic purpose, which in recent years has come to be regarded as important within the field. All three theoretical dimensions will be discussed in detail during the course.
