Society and Culture


In Society and Culture you will explore human behaviour, including the interactions of individuals, societies, cultures and environments. You will learn about the ways societies are affected by social, political, historical, environmental and cultural factors and as a result are constantly changing. The subject looks objectively at issues such as gender, ethnicity, race and class, as well as the structures of influence and power that affect the lives and identities of individuals and groups. Through your study of Society and Culture you will develop the ability to influence your own future by acquiring new skills and values and an understanding that will enable you to participate more effectively in contemporary society.
