Welcome to the Junior College Systems of Knowledge Department

Since its inception in 1987, Systems of Knowledge (SOK) was intended to prepare students for higher education by serving as stimulus for a critical appreciation of culture within an interdisciplinary programme premised on the breaking down of departmental borders and specialisation.

The present programme of the MatSec Syllabus of Systems of Knowledge covers the following 4 Modules:

  • Module 1: Democratic values and Citizenship
  • Module 2: Aesthetic values, Art and Culture
  • Module 3: Scientific values and Technology

  • Module 4: Sustainable Development and Environment

Although the narrow focus on 3 ‘A’ Level syllabuses was eventually modified by reducing the ‘A’ levels to two and adding on three intermediate subjects, SOK could still justify its presence by providing the means to relate, or at least discover, perhaps experiment with, possible convergence in themes that otherwise would have remained the exclusive property of separate fields of knowledge. Convergence pays when it is carried out in a way that an aggregation within diverse and specialised areas of knowledge does not.
