About this Unit
This unit is designed to expand student’s understanding of the relationship between society, family life and people’s experiences of health, leisure and fitness. The unit provides the opportunity for students to explore the role of the family as a social institution and examining its importance in the development of identity, the reproduction of social structure & culture and in the experience of health, illness & leisure. Central to this unit is the notion that the family occurs in and is impacted upon by a variety of social, cultural and historical contexts. The unit develops these themes from a sociological perspective and students are actively involved in exploring these issues.
