The intent of the Sociology curriculum is to enable students to participate in our globalised society with understanding, and gain the higher-level skills needed for the knowledge-based, ever changing economies and societies. 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 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 facades and appearances and set aside their own personal beliefs to enable them to grow by understanding societies (The World) from various viewpoints with objectivity. It empowers students with intellectually challenging ideas, varying concepts and essential skills of critical thinking. We encourage students to debate and challenge opinions, so they succeed in being resilient and tolerant.
