SOCIAL SCIENCE: NOW AND FUTURE – Michael Couch

Description

The 20th century has seen the rise of a half-dozen social sciences which have progressed from fringe to mainstream ideas. From sociology and psychology to economics and gender/feminist theory, this course will look at the development of the social sciences into the 21st century. We will also consider how these disciplines are relevant in understanding society now, and global developments heading into the future.  

Michael Couch has been teaching community education courses for over a decade. With an academic background in Philosophy, Classical Studies, Education and History, he recently completed his PhD in the History of Philosophy of Education in New Zealand. He enjoys learning new topics, and incorporates 

passion and wry humour into all the courses he teaches.
