Through the study of sociology, students will examine social phenomena that affect people’s lives in profound ways. The course is designed and delivered to nurture thoughtful and motivated young people, who can act responsibly as active citizens, and who believe in their ability to change their community for the better.
The sociology curriculum challenges students to look beyond appearances and set aside their own personal beliefs to enable them to grow in compassion and critical awareness of their own identity. The study and evaluation of sociological perspectives is a particularly rigorous element of the course which students find challenging and stimulating as they explore differing interpretations from sociologists analysing modern society. It empowers students with intellectually challenging ideas and concepts and develops essential skills of critical thinking
