The social science curriculum draws its content mainly from geography, history, political science and economics. Some elements of sociology and commerce are also included. Together they provide a comprehensive view of society-over space and time, and in relation to each other. Each subject’s distinct methods of enquiry help the learners understand society from different angles and form a holistic view. All subjects are taken up in depth and separately at Studymate.
- To develop an understanding of the processes of change and development-both in terms of time and space, through which human societies have evolved.
