Understanding how society works at an individual, family, community and government level is important if you want to participate in or influence the way decisions are made that impact on our society.
In this major you develop a sound understanding of the interplay between social forces, economics, and politics. This focus provides a strong platform to explore power dynamics, influences on decision making, demographic and behavioural trends, and the challenges caused by economic, political and social disadvantage.
Along with the depth of understanding you'll gain throughout your degree, you'll also develop critical analysis and problem-solving skills, which are crucial for the public service, social sector and community organisations; all areas where many of our graduates start their successful careers.
