  SOCIOLOGY OF INEQUALITY

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2011-12

La asignatura Sociología de las Desigualdades se sitúa en el segundo curso del Grado en Trabajo Social. Es, junto con la Estructura Social de primer año, una materia útil para conocer la estructura social, con especial referencia a la situación de España. Dicho conocimiento interesa en el trabajo social en la medida que permite situar los problemas sociales (desempleo, desigualdad económica, educativa y en salud, pobreza, discriminación, exclusión, acceso a los bienes y servicios) en un marco explicativo para comprenderlos y abordarlos en la práctica del Trabajo Social. Sirve también para conocer e identificar los principales sistemas de categorización social (género, clase social, etnia, nacionalidad, edad) y, por tanto, para detectar las necesidades e intereses de los diferentes grupos de población. El conocimiento de la Estructura Social es necesario para el diagnóstico y planificación de la intervención social.
