|SCIENTIFIC DISCIPLINARY SECTOR||SPS/11|
The teaching belongs to the characterising formative activities of the course of study ("Historical-social, juridical-economic, political and international relations disciplines") and is held by a university lecturer belonging to the Department of Political and International Sciences. The teaching is based on the scientific-disciplinary sector SPS/11 (Sociology of Political Phenomena).
The course is aimed at providing students with: the specific knowledge through which the sociological approach analyses the public opinion as a process of interaction between the civil society and the sphere of strategic decisions as well as the basic knowledge for institutional communication’s analysis; the ability to understand the most relevant contemporary transformations in the reference fields in relation to the ongoing social change; the ability to apply knowledge and understanding skills to other specific contexts or case-studies aimed at critical and autonomous analysis.
At the end of the course, the Student, who has actively attended and participated in the planned exercises, will have acquired:
1) The specific knowledge with which the sociological perspective analyzes public opinion as a process of interaction between civil society and the sphere of binding strategic decisions;
2) The basic knowledge for the analysis of institutional communication;
3) The ability to understand the most relevant contemporary transformations in the areas of reference in relation to ongoing social change;
4) The ability to apply knowledge and understanding to specific contexts or case studies aimed at critical and autonomous analysis.
The basic knowledge of political sociology is suggested.
For this purpose any edition of a Handbook of Political Sociology may be used. Suggested: M. Rush, Politics and Society. An Introduction to Political Sociology, Routledge.
Lessons will be held in presence.
