Human Society and its Environment

In human society and its environment (HSIE), both subjects of history and geography are mandatory from Year 7 to Year 10.

Students learn specific historical and geographical concepts and skills in history and geography. They also have an opportunity to learn more about people and the societies and environments in which they live through elective subjects.

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
