Sociology is the study of how society works: issues that matter in the world today and what people are doing about them. We focus on human rights and social justice, and encourage learners to explore the issues in society that they are passionate about.
Level 1 Sociology will give you an understanding of issues that are important today, why are they important, and how to research and analyse these issues.
Topics may include:
-Black Lives Matter Movement
-Child Poverty in Aotearoa
-Social Action (making a difference)
