Students acquire a profound knowledge of the social, cultural, institutional, and familial influences on individual life courses and learning biographies. They are able to compare and evaluate different life course theories.

To what extent are the learning biographies and life courses of today’s young people the result of socially, culturally, institutionally, and familiarly determined opportunities and restrictions? What contextual factors and decisions in the individual life course might explain a more or less satisfactory life? These and related questions concerning life courses and individual learning biographies will be discussed on the basis of theoretical concepts and empirical findings. A special focus will be put on the equality of opportunities in education and on the development of social and professional life courses across the transition from adolescence to adulthood. In addition, the conditions of growing up and of lifelong learning will be analysed form a culturally comparative and social historical perspective.
