Social studies subject curriculum (SAF1-02)

Main subject areas

The subject has been structured into main subject areas for which competence aims have been formulated. These main subject areas supplement each other and must be considered together.

This subject is a common core subject for all the upper secondary education programmes. Learning in the subject shall therefore be made relevant for pupils by adapting the subject to the different education programmes.

The social studies subject is present on all levels in primary and secondary education and training. In primary/lower secondary school this comprises the main subject areas of sociology, geography and history. Geography and history are continued as common core subjects in the programmes for general studies.

The social studies subject at upper secondary level comprises the following main subject areas: the individual and society, working and business life, politics and democracy, culture and international relations. Sociology and economics are integrated in each main subject area.
