Sociology level 3 is a vehicle for understanding human behaviour, social structures and cultures.  It directs attention to the way in which the parts of society are related, and the causes and impact of social change.  Sociology develops a capacity for detailed observation of social patterns and behaviour in groups, and encourages learners to become aware of and to think about daily life and activities from a variety of sociological perspectives.  This study allows learners to harness key sociological frameworks to analyse social institutions, especially in contemporary Australian society.
