Vision of the Religious Studies Curriculum

Psychology is concerned with the study of the individual, our thoughts, feelings and behaviours, whereas Sociology investigates how the society we live in shapes who we are. Within Criminology we explore why people break the law and improving systems in education, rehabilitation and crime prevention.

We teach students Social Science because it encourages self-awareness and reflection about their experiences in society. We feel it is important for students to practice seeing the world through the eyes of others, exploring new concepts and ideas, to ignite their curiosity and both broaden and deepen their knowledge and understanding of why we are the way we are, both as individuals and as a society. Studying Social Sciences will encourage a deeper understanding of social life, groups and societies to become a more socially aware member of society.
