This subject introduces students to the concepts of society and the individual, and their interrelationship. A sociological and historical approach is adopted that emphasises the development of the modern industrial and post-industrial state and its complex relationship with social collectives and individuals. Emphasis is placed on the role of social institutions in shaping individual and collective difference. The subject introduces students to sociological theories and relates these to the particular adult and vocational education settings in which the students are working. It also focuses on 'dimensions of disadvantage' in both theoretical and practical contexts. Social justice and equity are also explored in the current Australian context.
