BESC3051 Social Science Integration

Bachelor Course Unit

Level: 300

Credit points: 6

Prerequisites: None

Unit Description

The purpose of this unit is to provide students with the opportunity to review and integrate key learnings in social science that have developed over the Bachelor of Applied Social Science course. Students will formulate and articulate an overarching understanding of their learning in the course and of social science as a discipline. Students will integrate selected samples from their assessments over the course, using a reflexive writing approach into a report, to document their development of knowledge in social science and skills in applying this knowledge in practice. Students will critically reflect on their learning journey by identifying the major conceptual themes for each year of the course, and will examine how the course has facilitated their attainment of ACAP’s Graduate Attributes. The major findings of this report will be presented in class for on-campus students, and in the discussion forum for online students.
