Human society and its environment

HSIE

Students at Airlie Beach Queensland excursion

In Human Society and its Environment (HSIE), both History and Geography are mandatory from Kindergarten to Year 10.  In these Mandatory courses, students learn specific historical and geographical concepts and skills.  In the Elective courses available in Years 9 and 10, students delve deeper into studying people, and the societies and environments in which they live.

A large number of individual subjects make up the key learning area of HSIE, in which students:

·         Research, gather and analyse information

·         Question and make judgements 

·         Write for a variety of purposes

In Years 11 and 12, students can choose from a range of HSIE courses, including:

·         Aboriginal Studies

·         Ancient History

·         Business Studies

·         Economics

·         Geography

·         History Extension

·         Legal Studies

·         Modern History

·         Society and Culture

·         Studies of Religion.

All HSIE courses are enhanced through excursions, from local sites to as far as Canberra and North Queensland.
