Aннотация:
Спецкурс, разработанный Светланой Саблиной - доцентом кафедры социологии Новосибирского государственного университета, является уникальным. Во-первых, данный курс, насколько нам известно, не читается ни в одном университете мира. Во-вторых, специально под этот курс разработано учебно-методическое пособие, в котором не только представлены концепции статусной рассогласованности, но и даны основы для эмпирического исследования данного социального феномена. В-третьих, эта программа разработана как для чтения лекций, так и для проведения семинарских занятий. В данном случае мы представляем Вашему вниманию английскую версию спецкурса.




I. Introduction
a) Locating the content of the course within the discipline
The special course "SI Conception" is a continuation of the required course "Social Stratification" for second-year students. "Social Stratification" is the introductory one. Students study the main sociological theories and concepts connected with social inequality. The development of these theories and results of modern researches have been represented in the special courses. "SI Conception" is one of them. SI Conception is one of the branches of social stratification theory. It develops the functional stratification theory (T. Parsons, K. Davis & W. Moore).
This special course has been developed for the first time in our country.

b) Locating the course within the curriculum
"SI Conception" is the required special course for students specializing in "General Sociology". There are two specializations within the Sociological Department of Economic Faculty: Economic Sociology and General Sociology. Fourth-year and fifth-year students choose one of these directions. The curriculum of each specialization includes two required courses and five elective courses. All of the required courses are taught for the fourth-year students.

c) Students' assumed knowledge basis for course participation
Students' participation is based on the knowledge of introductory courses "Social Stratification", "Social Psychology" and "Mathematical Methods in Sociology". The language ability is also a necessary condition. Their level of English (in reading) should be proficient.

II. Objectives of the course
a) Academic Aims (within the discipline)
The main aim of the course is to acquaint students with SI Conception. It's developed in the Western countries. During the period of social changes the degree of status inconsistency influence on formation of inequality system is higher than in the stable market societies. Status inconsistency influences on individual's views and behaviors too. This phenomenon has not been well-studied by Russian researchers. The course furthermore introduces students into methods of SI-research. The results of modern status inconsistency researches are also discussed.

b) Learning Outcomes
The results of theoretical and empirical SI-research have been published in English. The Novosibirsk libraries lack the necessary funding for literature (it's a general problem in Russia). During preparation of the course the bibliography had been formed. The students of Novosibirsk State University were able to acquaint themselves with main SI-research.

Students are taught the adaptation of Western SI Conception for the study of social inequality in Russian society. Students may apply the mathematical methods to SI-research after learning them. The course makes students' knowledge of social stratification theory more profound.
