Citizenship (AS Only)
Who’s in charge and how much influence do they have over our lives? What can we do to influence how our society is organised? How do our collective identities develop? Our course delves deeply into issues that affect each of us individually, and when we take up our places in a group or as part of society.
Citizenship Studies is an exciting and dynamic specification designed to engage you with present day issues, and to help you develop transferable skills such as planning, negotiating, decision making, evaluating information and constructing arguments. These skills aim to prepare you for the demands of higher education and employment.
Contemporary issues will be explored from political, ethical and moral perspectives and students will be encouraged to reflect on their own experience of the social world in which they live.
