Why does inequality exist and what can we do about it? In this theoretical and research-based course, you'll examine the major causes of inequalities in our world. You'll explore the nature of intersectionality, including how factors such as gender, sexuality, ethnicity, age and others come together and how certain groups face unique forms of disadvantage. You'll develop as a researcher and work out strategies that can be used to change the unequal world in which we live in order to help to achieve equity and social justice.
You'll have opportunities to develop your own employability skills and depending on your chosen modules, to learn skills such as conference speaking, using social research software such as Nvivo and SPSS, writing a report for global bodies such as the United Nations, writing a campaign strategy for an activist movement and developing electronic resources such as blogs, podcasts and YouTube clips.
