Sociology

SACE Credits: 10

Teacher: Amber Clark

The function of sociology, as of every science, is to reveal that which is hidden. We’ll get a chance to look at how societies across the world function, what motivates and changes a society. The specific areas will be:

  • Forces of Social Change and Continuity, and
  • The Cultures and Subcultures of Australia.

 

There are lots of in class discussions and a chance to research what is happening in the world right now! If you are interested uncovering the world around you, then sociology for you!
