The course introduces sociological perspectives on rural and remote communities with an emphasis on the multifaceted tension between social structure and individual agency, solidarity and conflict, and local revitalisation in an era of intensified globalisation.
Prerequisites: Requirements for acceptance to courses are generally the same as for acceptance to the master’s program in whole, i.e. that applicants have completed undergraduate studies, regardless of whether BA, BSc, BEd, or other equivalent study. The master’s committee may decide to accept undergraduate students, who are a long way into their studies, to individual courses. All applications for entry to individual courses must be reviewed by the Master’s program committee and a decision can take up to two weeks.
It is important for applicants to have a good knowledge of English, as all teaching takes place in English.
