Course Description

This course will enable students to consider what drives persistent inequality in access to, and progression within, professional occupations. We will explore the impact of widening participation in higher education and the relationship between education and occupation. The course will engage students in debates around the causes of inequality and how these may be reduced. We will draw on a range of key sociological theories and how these relate to real-world issues. The course provides an introduction to the key ideas relating to social class, human capital and professional closure. No previous knowledge is required.
