Sociology is the study of how individuals and groups think, feel, and behave. Students develop their knowledge and understanding of theories, concepts and perspectives to explain behaviour. Students develop skills which promote objective thinking and apply evidence-based research for understanding and interpreting human behaviour.
This course enables students to understand how individuals function within different contexts. Such knowledge has the potential to empower and enhance individual abilities and facilitate awareness of the human condition, along with tolerance and respect for others. The study of Sociology provides continuity with many tertiary and industry courses.
Units from Psychology and Sociology can be combined to make a Behavioural Sciences minor, major, major minor or double major.
