Best Courses in Sociology 2019.

Welcome to Valencia, a dream-like city which is actually real! Within the precincts of one single city, you will be able to experience both history and modernity while savoring the delights of a true Mediterranean life.

Today, Valencia is Spain’s third largest city, but over 2,000 years ago, it already shined under the reign of Caesar Augustus. In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, Valencia wielded economic power throughout the Mediterranean. In the new millennium, this welcoming city continues making history with its avant-garde architecture, as well as with its people and economic fabric.

The City of Arts & Sciences is an architectural collection of exceptional beauty, harmonizing the outer structure with the content. Its stunning architecture naturally blends with its great capacity to entertain, teach, and excite by promoting public participation. Offering cultural and intellectual leisure, the City of Arts & Sciences has given Valencia the best center of this type in Europe.... [-]

This course will be shaped around a conversation about social entrepreneurship and the role social entrepreneurs play in creating positive social change in our rapidly evolving global community.

Governments and often large well-established NGOs are slow to adapt and are struggling to provide the necessary services that millions of marginalized and disadvantaged people desperately need.

And this is where social entrepreneurs can pick up the slack. Throughout this course students will be identifying social issues that they feel passionate about and learn how these issues might be rectified using social entrepreneurship. All students will create a business plan for a fictitious social venture that in some way addresses a social issue.... [-]

Course in Corporate Social Responsibility

Study location: Buenos Aires, Argentina Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a field of research that offers opportunities for companies to improve their business by engaging responsibly with the natural and social environment. Kulturstudier offers three different CSR courses, level 1,2 and 3. You can combine all three in one semester, or mix CSR with studies in Spanish or philosophy. The courses are offered in cooperation with Universidad Nacional de San Martin.

What is CSR

CSR is a business opportunity that allows companies to improve their corporate reputation and to establish, develop and enhance their market share. The concept implies that corporations commit to improve the society and protect the environment, beyond obeying the national and international legal obligations and without detracting from the economic purpose of the enterprise or impairing its competitiveness. The great majority of multinational companies today recognise the public demand for accountability for the social and environmental impact of the company. They can learn to see the economic benefit of extending their scope from short term profit, to long term sustainable growth. CSR training is in high demand. Not least with corporations establishing in countries where the laws of governments do not sufficiently protect nature and people. These courses can enable you to play a part. ... [-]

Sociology is the study of people in society. It examines people as social beings on the individual, group and societal level. It can be defined as: ‘the scientific study of human social life, groups and societies.’ Sociology is thus a social science (like psychology or anthropology), rather than a physical one (such as physics, chemistry or biology). It is the task of the sociologist to unravel how ‘nurture’ or ‘social’ factors (rather than ‘nature’ (or genetic, biological or inherited factors, as in the study of biology) influence people at the level of the individual, group or wider society.

Sociologists consider how social and socially-influenced factors, such as family, education, ethnicity, social class and gender can play a part in shaping individual identities. Sociologists also consider group behaviour. For example, a sociologist may study how an office teamwork, or how people’s behaviour is affected by those of their colleagues or work associates. They may also question how factors such as gender or class influence our behaviours as individuals and in group contexts.... [-]

How our program differs…

Historically, Workplace Diversity programmes have focused on building awareness of and appreciation for differences in race, ethnic origin, gender, and religious preference. Beyond awareness and appreciation is the need for skill-building in intercultural relations.

Our research identifies the intercultural perspective to be, perhaps, the most important factor to consider when managing relationships in today’s global workplace.

Our research builds upon the foundations laid by CQ Pioneers Earley, Ang, & Tan (2006), Bucher (2008), and Livermore (2011). To that research, Ridley-Smith (2015), has described the dynamic, iterative model of interchange that should exist between newcomers and their host culture members. This intercultural exchange is so powerful that, when used, it all but guarantees a mutually beneficial and rewarding CQ exchange and organizational outcomes. However, when any of the iterative components are missing, both entities will experience the result of low CQ and diminished organizational effectiveness. As such, this course promotes a symbiotic (SYM-Q™) approach to intercultural relations. The SYM-B™ inventory assesses which among the five focus areas are the strongest and weakest. Our training programmes, consultancies, and coaching will help you to chart a course that will increase your organizational CQ. Members of your organization will conclude, "CQ is for us!"... [-]
