Humanities & Social Science

The Humanities and Social Science (HASS) department at SFX covers a broad range of disciplines including history, geography, business, legal studies, global studies as well as civics and citizenship. HASS aims to immerse students in a wide range of activities across these subjects in order to develop the skills required to become active global citizens as they prepare for life beyond SFX in an increasingly globalised world. We focus on developing students’ understanding of the social, political, and cultural dimensions of human society as well as developing and refining students’ critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving skills.

HASS provides students with a broad range of opportunities to develop vital skills such as research, analysis, interpretation, and evaluation of information. Students are encouraged to investigate, inquire and critically examine a range of social and environmental issues, including globalisation, sustainability, democracy and cultural diversity. Through a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach, students are provided with the tools to analyse complex social and environmental issues, develop evidence-based arguments and take an active role in shaping the future of their society.
