Introduction to Social Science - SSCI100

This unit introduces students to the distinctive disciplinary perspectives of social science in theory and practice. It addresses three major themes: thinking socially (examining distinctions between natural and social sciences), the founders and foundations of social science (theory, research design and method); and the impact of social science as a force for global change (policy, planning, management and activism). Core topics and themes in the Bachelor degree are developed, highlighting available majors within the program. The unit emphasises the development of professional graduate capabilities and applied critical skills through a significant component of engaged learning.
