Sociocultural Solutions to Problems of Human Adaptation - APY3705

Under Graduate Degree Semester module NQF level: 7 Credits: 12
Module presented in English
Purpose: To equip students to be able to engage in a rigorous discourse about the impact and influence of sociocultural diversity. While such diversity finds expression at the local level, its global basis will also be understood by graduates. This module also places emphasis on the understanding of the relationship between historical processes and its influence on local culture and furthermore the relationship link between the local and the global culture. Using different ethnographic examples, interpretations and discourses the module considers how sociocultural diversity has resulted from the different ways in which societies have developed methods of coping with the problems or challenges arising from the mutual connectedness and interdependence of people and systems. Critical thinking, rationality of thought and lifelong learning are the cornerstones of this module which qualifying students will be expected to constantly engage with.
