Unit Overview

The course British People and Society is divided into two parts. In our first lecture, The British People, we will cover topics regarding the population and the current social, economic and cultural reasons for the shift in the population of the UK, as well as the shift in the way family units are perceived of. In our second lecture, British Society, we will focus more closely on the individuals and talk about the aspects that define day to day life on a much smaller scale. These include one’s class, manners, habits, behaviour and even language.

Learning Outcome:

Upon completion, students will be able to:

  • Understand the groups of people and the families that make up the British world today, as well as the way in which they have helped the UK evolve through new customs and religious practices while also preserving some of the older traditions within the country.
  • Become aware of the British class system and how this may affect a person’s behaviour, habits, manners and even the way they speak.
  • Gain full rounded insight of British society and of the people who constitute it with real life examples that help build in depth cultural and behavioral understanding.
