If you are interested in the work and the people around you,
this is the subject for you. 

Why should I study this course?

It helps you to make decisions for yourself on all sorts of issues. We are bombarded with information about things like the environment, fair trade and peoples rights across the world, but most of us find it hard to work out what’s right and wrong. Citizenship helps you develop the skills you need to decide for yourself. You will investigate issues that really matter and work out what can be done about them.

What will I learn?

If you are going to investigate current issues, you need to know how the world works. The course will help you to understand how an individual can change things, so it explores how we make laws, our place in the economy, what pressure groups do, and how we all relate to the rest of the world. The media are also important because they influence how we think - so we need to work out what their messages really mean. There is also a focus on communities, how we all live together, and our similarities and differences.
