At the first stage of the course, information is given on the structural analysis of the social institutions.
At the second stage, structural-categorical data is given on the six fundamental social institutions in the Turkish Republican period.
At the third stage, the reports, which have been prepared by the students on their own choice and related to their thesis, under the interrelationship of the variables within a fundamental social institution, are discussed.
Course Objectives: The fundamental aim of the course is to provide students who will prepare a doctorate thesis on in particular, five main social institutions, namely, politics, economy, family, religion, education and art in the framework of the socio-cultural structural analysis in the Turkish Republican Period with the information to identify the variables of their analysis. Second, it is aimed that the students see the different stances of the variables from different sociological perspectives, that they do a conceptual model that would possibly emerge in this regard, and that they gain a notion as to how they could classify the information in the literature accordingly. Thus, special attention is attached on students’ data collection and command on literature on the basis of their doctorate thesis.
