    This unit is an introduction to the sociological perspective and sociological concepts. The object of the unit is to teach skills for understanding and finding out about society and social behaviour. The emphasis is on Australian society.

    Learning Outcomes

    Upon successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Demonstrate familiarity with some of the contributions of sociology to understanding contemporary society;

    2. Identify and analyse some of the social processes that are constitutive of our social worlds and those of others, and how those social worlds interact with experience, self-identities and life-choices;

    3. Apply sociological concepts to make sense of society and to develop confidence in thinking critically and reflexively about the social explanations and understandings we use and encounter;

    4. Creatively use sociological imagination to explore, respond to, and negotiate complex social experiences where we are confronted by new freedoms but also by often bewildering social changes; and

    5. Recognise, find, mobilise and critically engage sociological information and texts in your writing practice to sustain your own sociological argument.
