it is indeed D100 thanks for reply thinking of starting in october after i leave work. glad you liked it wanted to slowly do a degree afterwards as sahm - keep up discipline and grey cells ticking i hope
its a long term plan to do psychology degree then go on to psychoanalyses. i know its hard work and very long term.
i have worked in social care and social work for nearly 20yrs will take break for kid/s and want to retrain and keep interested in something else
may well be in my mid forties by the time i finnish but thats ok
yours sound interesting i find work with children very hard indeed and not for the faint hearted.
I'm just coming to the end of DD100 (started in October 2005) and I can't recommend it highly enough.
About the course: It's a very broad-ranging introduction - sociology, social policy, politics, economics, philosophy, social psychology - with an overall theme of social change since 1945 using three course themes of structure/agency, uncertainty/diversity and knowledge/knowing.
If you're going down the psychology degree route, you might be slightly disappointed in DD100's relative lack of psychology content: the sociology/politics content is far greater.
I have absolutely loved every minute of it - it has completely changed the way I look at the world/read the papers/watch TV. You will come out of DD100 questioning everything!
I could ramble on for hours about it, but if you want to know anything specific, just ask and I'll do my best to oblige
i am going into that one because i just want to get back to study and it seems to cover a range of subjects i am already interested in, thus, one hopes making motivation to study easier
i thought about going into social policy but even if i feel drawn i really need to break away from that field. years of frustration with the stupid policies that i have to work with i guess, rant rant...
i really appreciate your enthusiastic impute. i hope to start in october
