THE CURRICULAR AREAS IN THE CONTEXT OF GLOBALISATION. THE INTEGRATION OF TRANSCULTURAL STUDIES IN THE SOCIOLOGY CURRICULUM

E. Nedelcu

Nicolae Titulescu University (ROMANIA)
The quality of education can be measured also through its capacity to adequate to the social changes. Under the conditions of the macro-social changes representative for the XXIst century, the objectives of the educational reform are much more complex, following adaptations/ameliorations of the education plan, of the curricular areas, the management of education, the evaluation system, the quality of the teacher-student feedback, etc.

The paper analyses the objectives of the global educational reform and the changes it requires in the curricular areas: social sciences.

The conclusion of the study is that, in the age of globalisation, the educational system (especially the universities) doesn’t only have the role to adapt and to answer to the social change.
It is required to get involved in defining the new society, in contributing to creating new moral, civic, economic, political values and even more. The university must produce moral effects, must create certain values required by the new transnational world. The integration of the civic and transcultural studies in the sociology curricula (and in the entire social sciences curricular area) becomes the most important objective of the present global educational reform.
