Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS)

Humanities and Social Sciences is the study of human behaviour and interaction in social, cultural, environmental, economic and political contexts. Humanities and Social Sciences has a historical and contemporary focus, from personal to global contexts and considers opportunities and challenges for the future.

By studying Humanities and Social Sciences, students will develop the ability to question, think critically, make decisions based on evidence, devise proposals for actions and communicate effectively.

The Humanities and Social Sciences subjects provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to develop a broad understanding of the world in which we live and how people can participate as active and informed citizens in the 21st century.

In senior years, students are then given the opportunity to specialise in Geography, Modern History and or Economics.
