Good introductory text books for studying an undergraduate degree in sociology. You should read at least the introductory chapter to one of the text books below (preferably the one recommended by the university you most want to go to), to give yourself an idea of the core themes in degree level Sociology.

The Oxford Handbook of Interdisciplinarity provides a synoptic overview of the current state of interdisciplinary research, education, administration and management, and problem solving—knowledge that spans the disciplines and interdisciplinary fields while also crossing the boundary between the academic community and society at large.

What Are Academic Disciplines. 6 value of disciplines and the practicality or possibility of interdisciplinarity and the general direction of the social sciences.

Adorno sees sociology not as one academic discipline among others, but as an over-arching discipline that impinges on all aspects of social life.

Interdisciplinarity has become as important outside academia as within. Academics, policy makers, and the general public seek insights to help organize the vast amounts of knowledge being produced, both within research and at all levels of education.

An interdisciplinary approach to the institution of Jewish marriage is necessary because no single discipline is able to provide a comprehensive understanding of its complex and emblematic role in Israeli democracy.

The disciplines, applied fields, and interdisciplines are not rigid and unchanging but are evolving social and intellectual constructs and, as such, are time-dependent. That is, today’s discipline may well have been yester-day’s. subdiscipline (further defined in Chapter 4) or branch of an existing discipline.

Section “Exploring Academic Disciplines” focused on the formal differences among various academic disciplines and their discourse communities. This section will explore the intellectual processes and concepts disciplines share in common. Calls for closer connections among disciplines can be heard throughout the world of scholarly research, from major universities to the National Institutes of Health.

In Defense of Disciplines presents a fresh and daring analysis of the argument surrounding interdisciplinarity. Challenging the belief that blurring the boundaries between traditional academic fields promotes more.

This volume examines the way in which we organize knowledge into disciplines, then reorganize it into new configurations when the existing disciplines have come to seem irrelevant or exclusory. Interdisciplinarity is the ideal entry point into 5/5(1).

An interdisciplinary approach is a style of education that incorporates knowledge and skills from multiple areas of learning. In childhood education, its primary purpose is to enhance critical thinking skills.
