L3SOCI

L3 Sociology

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs S. Smythe

Sociology involves the critical analysis of how people organise and participate in group or collective behaviour, and how societies change over time. This course is a continuation of the L2 Sociology course, but it is not necessary to have studied L2 to enter this course. 

Students will investigate how individuals fit into mass society; how inequalities based on race, gender and social class arise and are perpetuated; and how social institutions such as education and religion influence people’s lives.

The 2021 Year 13 Sociology course will be made up of a combination of L3 Social Studies Achievement Standards and L3 Sociology Graded Unit Standards. Students will have the opportunity to gain 14 Achievement Standards to use for University Entrance and course endorsement as well as up to 29 Graded Unit Standard credits. Graded Unit Standards offer Merit and Excellence grades as well as Achieved. 

Students will not be expected to sit all 43 credits made available to them as the actual standards set will be tailored to the individual needs of the student. No student will be asked to complete more than 18 credits during the calendar year unless they request to do more.


Required Prior Learning

Entry is subject to approval by HOD and dependent on proven performance in Year 12. The expectation is that students will have gained at least 14 credits at NCEA L2 in any L2 Social Science or English.
