Work and Employment - SOC866

The importance of work and employment for individuals as well as societies suggests that we live in work societies. Work is a basic social experience and a key sociological category. Policies around work and employment affect us in ways that we are not always aware of and can improve or hinder our well-being. This unit invites you to explore the relevance of work for individuals as well as societies. It studies the trends and processes at the workplace and contemplates the future role of work. The unit develops a map of how work fits into the structures of broader societies by making sense of your own work experiences, facts about work and contemporary policies.
