Syllabus:

The aim of Talking it to the Streets: Applied Social Sciences is to prepare students for the workplace. During the semester students will be asked to consider what type of job will suit their personality; their rights and responsibilities in the workplace; and the importance of reflexivity and teamwork during their careers. They will also develop skills in writing briefs, tenders and business plans; making recommendations based on research findings; and considering the financial and other implications of recommendations. Students will also develop an understanding of the different levels of governance in any organisation, the decision making process, and dispute resolutions. There is an emphasis on ‘hands on’ learning during the semester with students working together in small groups to simulate workplace teamwork practices.
