The teaching program consists of:
- Short weekly lectures,
- Workshop exercises,
- Related readings; and
- Independent research tasks over the course of the unit.
As this is an advanced course in the use of applied social science, it is vital for students to participate in all components of the unit. The lecture material and readings provide the conceptual basis of the course, examining the theory for each topic. The lectures and the workshop exercises are designed to complement this by providing the opportunity to exchange ideas, discuss research, and develop a critical and collaborative approach.
