  • Overview

    This is an exciting and innovative unit about Australian life and
    global societies. It also provides new and engaging ways to
    develop your understanding of the deep social relationships
    that bind us together and which, at the same time, underlie
    the expression of conflict and inequality. We focus in the unit
    on key areas of social life such as family, gender and sexuality,
    religion, age, crime, media, work, globalisation and social
    policy. We also introduce you to sociology and the sociological
    research process and hope to raise your interest in the social
    problems and questions confronting Australian society. The
    unit gives you valuable vocational skills that enable you to
    enjoy interesting and varied employment in a variety of
    different commercial, government and non-government
