The objective of the Level 5 Social Studies module is to guide you to become familiar with sociological concepts and develop an understanding of the major economic, cultural and social structures that make up our society and their effects. You will also develop an understanding of your position as an individual, a family member and as part of a community, recognise how economic, political, cultural and social structures are related and interdependent, and understand the impact of discrimination on individuals and groups in society. During this module you will examine critically contemporary social issues, acquire basic research skills and increase your effectiveness in life and work through understanding social issues.
