sociaal-culturele wetenschappen


socio-cultural studies; studies of women, minorities and the elderly

University degree programme in the behaviour and society sector. Multidisciplinary study of one of three groups in society that are at a disadvantage: ethnic minorities, women, or the elderly.

Combines poltical science, sociology, cultural anthropology and the sociology of non-western societies. The title 'socio-cultural studies' on its own does not indicate the content of the programme to an English-speaker. If used, it requires a descriptive note.

The three components of the programme might be called 'ethnic studies and minority issues', 'social gerontology' and 'gender studies'.
