About the Course

This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) will offer the participants an introduction into the most important classical sociological readings between the 18th and 20th century. Highly influential social science scholars, such as Karl Marx, Max Weber and Emile Durkheim, will be discussed during 8 sessions. Combined with small tests, based on the video’s and recommended readings, the participants will be encouraged to dive deeply into the complex texts and get familiar with classical sociological concepts that are still very relevant today....

Simple,neat and interesting way of explaining the content. Didn't get bored. Good refreshment if you already know the stuff and good introduction if you are new to sociology. Professor is really nice.

This is a course which helps you understand the origin of Sociology. The content of this course includes all the sociologists who played a great role, also the lectures are delivered in a superb way.

Good teacher, good humour. However, as it's only an introduction, it doesn't go in-depth and that might be missing. The English subtitles are horrendous.

It seemed to me that it is a good introduction for someone totally new to the topic.

Worst Certificate ever. It seems Amsterdam University is ashamed of it since it's the logo is so small. It should not be the most important thing here. The professor is incredibly good as much as the didactics, however, don't charge money for a certificate not really in the same level of other courses here. Otherwise, it is the second time that the name of the course comes in a stranger language, although I specifically told my choice. Coursera now seems not been able to curb its cookies enthusiasm.
