Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
identify a 'social' issue
use the skills of 'critical social thinking' to analyse a specific social issue
apply social stratification concepts to such issues as social justice, power, identity, family, the workplace, religion, and technology
understand key sociological ideas and their application to aspects of social organisation.
