Unit One is titled Ideas, Actors and Power, and focuses on the Australian system of government and democracy . Comparisons with other systems of government are drawn and different political philosophies are considered. Unit Two, titled Global Connections,  moves onto the international arena. This unit covers such contemporary global challenges as Climate Change, Human Rights, Conflict and Terrorism. This subject will enable students to engage with key political, economic and social issues, to understand how power is used, and to become better informed citizens and voters. The ability to analyse different political perspectives, and to develop independent and critical thinking skills, are key aims of this course.
