1 UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH AFRICA DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY UNISA S NEW APPLICATION AND REGISTRATION PHASES APPLICATION PHASE First-time students at UNISA must apply for admission on the prescribed form which is to be submitted together with the correct application fees, as well as the documents required for registration. Apply on-line: Cmd=ViewContent&ContentID=16832 or contact the UNISA Contact Centre at / Once the data has been recorded the system will allocate a student number which will be confirmed via , sms or mail depending on the contact details indicated on your application form. A registration package containing the relevant information brochure(s) and registration form will be mailed to you. Students who already have a UNISA student number proceed directly to the registration phase. REGISTRATION PHASE Once a student number has been allocated to an individual, this student number will remain his/her student number at UNISA for all formal qualifications Honours students may apply on-line for registration after the registration period for the particular academic year has opened. However, master s and doctoral students cannot apply on-line and are advised to submit their applications directly to UNISA Muckleneuk Campus, P O Box 392, UNISA, Regional offices can only forward master s and doctoral applications to the Muckleneuk Campus.

2 The registration form together with the minimum instalment required for registration must be submitted before the relevant closing date. Students must please take note that certain degrees are by selection and have earlier closing dates than the normal registration closing dates. Any documents required for registration submitted must be included here, if not previously submitted. Kindly note that only certified copies of academic records issued by the Registrar of the University/Institution concerned are accepted for registration purposes. Degree certificates should not be submitted. All applications for master s and doctoral degrees will be referred to the Section: Postgraduate Qualifications where they will be assessed before being referred to the relevant academic department where the Executive Committee will rule on admission. If approved, students who have submitted their complete application (i.e. all required documents and minimum fees) will automatically be registered after admission has been approved. Other students will be informed of any remaining conditions to be complied with in order to finalise their registration. All other students will be informed of the outcome of their applications and, where applicable, the minimum study fees paid will be refunded. The process outlined above may be time consuming in some cases, especially when we approach the various closing dates when most applications are invariably submitted. It is, therefore, essential that prospective students apply well in advance, especially where deadlines set by employers and sponsors have to be met. ii

5 DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY POSTGRADUATE BROCHURE The Department of Sociology at UNISA offers a number of postgraduate degrees. If you are interested in undertaking a postgraduate qualification, you should read this brochure and see which areas appeal to you. By all means feel free to contact the persons listed in this brochure if you would like to know more. We look forward to making contact with you, whether by letter or telephone or personally. You are welcome to visit us at the Department, but please remember to make an appointment beforehand. We wish you every success with your studies! Prof Derik Gelderblom Chair: Department of Sociology

6 In this brochure you will find information on the following postgraduate degrees: BA (HONS) IN SOCIOLOGY (Degree code: 04340) BA (HONS) SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR STUDIES IN HIV/AIDS (Degree code: ) MA SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR STUDIES IN HIV/AIDS (Degree code: ) MA IN SOCIOLOGY (Degree code: 06351) DLITT ET PHIL SOCIOLOGY (Degree code: 08346) * Note: Students who have a Bachelor of Social Science, Honours BA in Social Science or MA in Social Science qualification when they embark on their postgraduate studies at UNISA will take qualifications with different names (Honours BA in Social Science rather than Honours BA, MA in Social Science rather than MA, and DPhil rather than DLitt et Phil). These are in other respects exactly the same as the qualifications mentioned below (except for a change of name) and we will not refer to them again in this brochure. A.

7 Consult the and the my Postgraduate brochures regarding the general rules for admission to postgraduate studies, documents which must accompany an application for admission, number of papers for which students must register, reregistration, duration of study, applications for cancellations, etc. 1. GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT REGISTRATION 1.1 Admission requirements for new enrolments A Bachelor's degree and Sociology III are the minimum admission requirements for the Honours course in Sociology. However, all students with these qualifications are not automatically admitted. Two aspects are taken into account for admission to the Honours course in Sociology. These are undergraduate academic performance, especially with regard to Sociology III, and the time elapsed since Sociology III was completed. We are in possession of the academic records of students who obtained their Bachelor's degree at UNISA but students who attended other universities must request their previous university to send their complete undergraduate record to UNISA. This should include percentages obtained (symbols are insufficient). An application for admission can only be considered if an academic record has been received. In addition to the formal admission requirements which appear in the brochure the following admission requirements apply in the Department of Sociology: (1) An average mark of at least 60% in your undergraduate degree (and specifically a mark of 3

8 60% or more for the Sociology III course as a whole); and (2) You should ideally have obtained this mark (60%) less than six years ago. Students who do not comply with these requirements must generally repeat Sociology III for non-degree purposes and may reapply for admission. Such applications will then be considered in terms of the requirements which apply at the time of the application. (It is possible that the requirements may become more stringent, although it is not likely in the near future.) An exception which will be considered to these rules is where prospective students have obtained a postgraduate qualification (for example an Honours, Master's or Doctor's degree) after having passed Sociology III. If the undergraduate courses in Sociology were completed at a recognised university outside the Republic of South Africa, the content and duration of such undergraduate courses will first be examined by the Chair of the Department before admission is considered. Contact between student and lecturer is important right from the beginning. If you contact us directly, we can give you an idea of what to expect and of how to prepare yourself for the course. Once registration for the Honours course has been accepted, students are provided with the necessary tutorial letters for the year. Each tutorial letter contains outlines as well as the assignments and lists of the sources recommended for each assignment. These recommended books and articles may be ordered from the UNISA Library (although electronic versions of 4

9 certain articles can be directly accessed on the library system) and, in some cases from the Department of Sociology. (See the various 101 tutorial letters for details in this regard). 1.2 Reregistration ALTHOUGH THE DEGREE SHOULD PREFERABLY BE COMPLETED IN TWO OR THREE YEARS the university allows a MAXIMUM of six years for completion of the degree. Students should comply with the following MINIMUM requirement to be allowed to reregister for the Honours course in Sociology: Pass at least two papers after three years of study to qualify for registration for the fourth year of study. Students, who at the end of the third year of their studies have not passed the required number of papers, can only be allowed to register again with the approval of the Executive Committee of the College. 1.3 Number of papers for which students may register in their first year of study In their first year of registration students can register for one, two or a maximum of three papers. In order to establish how many papers you should register for, you should take into account how much time you have available. In order to be sufficiently prepared for the examination (or proposal writing in the case of the research module) it is expected that you will submit at least four (but preferably all five or six) assignments of a satisfactory standard per paper. IT IS THEREFORE IMPORTANT THAT YOU SHOULD REGISTER AND START WORKING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. 5

10 In exceptional circumstances the Chairperson of the Department will consider an application to register for more papers, provided that a written justification accompanies the application for registration. (In order not to delay their studies, such students must indicate for which three papers they wish to register should their applications be unsuccessful.) 1.4 Concurrent registration for an undergraduate course/ module(s) for non-degree purposes Under special circumstances you may register (for non-degree purposes) for one or two undergraduate modules while you are busy with your Honours course. The University requires students to submit in writing an acceptable motivation, stating among others how these modules are relevant for your Honours studies. 1.5 Offering of an honours paper in another subject In the College of Human Sciences a student may replace one of the papers of their honours degree with an honours paper in another subject if the departmental heads concerned are of the opinion that the student has sufficient background knowledge to be able to offer that paper and it is in the best interest of the student. 2. CURRICULUM The Honours curriculum comprises five papers. These are: Paper 1: Paper 2: Problematising modernity (SOSTH1X) Research project in the fields of work and social identity (HRSOC81) 6

11 Paper 3: Paper 4: Paper 5: Designing social programmes in the social sciences (SB7003V) Social research in Sociology and HIV/AIDS (HMSOC80) Social change and reconstruction challenges in developing societies (SOSTH2Y) NB: THE SEVEN-CHARACTER CODES WHICH APPEAR IN BRACKETS AFTER THE TITLES OF THE PAPERS MUST BE INDICATED ON YOUR REGISTRATION FORM. 2.1 Problematising modernity (SOSTH1X) The purpose of this paper is to introduce students to important issues in classical and contemporary sociological theory. Its central theme is the attempt to engage with modernity as a social phenomenon in both Western and non-western societies and studying its challenges and opportunities 2.2 Research project in the fields of work and social identity (HRSOC81) This paper results in a portfolio of work in the fields of the Sociology of work or Social Identity. It consists of three parts, the first two of which are theories and particular problems within these fields. In the third part, you apply theoretical insights to a particular empirical problem. The work in this module is done under the supervision of a particular lecturer, who is allocated to you at the beginning and is responsible for all your submissions in the module. 7

12 2.3 Social change and reconstruction challenges in developing societies (SOSTH2Y) The aim of this module is to enable students to explore critically social change and reconstruction challenges in the fields of poverty, stratification, and development. The themes giving form to this focus varies from more theoretical to more applied to South Africa Social research in Sociology and HIV/AIDS The focus in this paper is to provide advanced research skills. 2.5 Designing social programmes in the social sciences (SB7003V) The focus of this module is on providing theoretical and applied knowledge and skills in programme design and evaluation. One of the outcomes of the module is to design a programme framework on a selected social issue like HIV and AIDS by following the steps in social programme design and development. 3. TUTORIAL MATTER FOR THE HONOURS COURSE No study guides are provided for the Honours course since this course is based on independent study. However there is an extensive 101 tutorial letter for each module, as well as a general tutorial letter containing guidelines on assignment preparation. You will notice that the 101 tutorial letters (which you will receive as soon as possible after your registration has been accepted) spell out a number of themes on which you will be examined. (This is, however, as explained 8

13 earlier, not the case with SOSNAVN). These themes set out and cover the syllabus. The tutorial letters will also provide you with lists of references covering these themes. Obviously you must study these sources in order to cover the themes adequately. VERY IMPORTANT - We require a measure of independent learning from Honours students. In the unlikely event that the recommended literature is not available, we expect students to search the UNISA Library or other libraries for additional relevant sources wherever possible so as to complete the assignment in question. 4. ASSIGNMENTS AND ADMISSION TO THE EXAMINATION Every 101 tutorial letter for the Honours course lists a number of assignments on specific themes which are dealt with in the letters. These assignments set out the curriculum on which you are examined at the end of the academic year. It is therefore to your advantage to send in all the assignments for comments from your lecturers. 5. REQUIREMENTS FOR ASSIGNMENTS Please consult the general tutorial letter SOSHONQ/301 for information about requirements for assignment writing and submission in Honours Sociology. 9
