ABSTRACT

Although sociology education is celebrating its 100th year anniversary in Turkish higher education, the field itself is not known quite well by the society. Familial worries in the context of emotional sociology are very important because families may have when they think of their child's future especially after graduation from university. Primary aim of this paper is to find out the essence and main sources of parental worries. In this paper it is assumed that status of sociology in society and its education are inseparable parts and there are mutual relationships among them. Using phenomenological approach data gathered from 25 parents are analysed. Findings revealed that insufficient employment opportunities as well as little information about sociology are the essence or main reasons of parental concerns.
