Social Sciences

Social sciences encompass courses relating to religious studies, family studies, housing and home design, food and nutrition and raising and caring for children.

The courses explore human society and culture, social structures and relationships. They are concerned with how students view themselves, their families, their communities, and the broader society, and how they come to understand and respond to the world around them.

Through practical experience, discussion, debate, research, reflection, and the development of critical and creative thinking skills, social sciences courses help students become self-motivated problem solvers equipped with the skills and knowledge that will enable them to face their changing world with confidence.
