Sociology is the study of the individual and society and will appeal to students who are interested in investigating how our everyday lives are shaped by factors such as class, gender and ethnicity.
Sociology will develop your research skills and your ability to weigh up evidence and arguments. You will look at human behaviour by studying social groups and he influences on their actions, ideas and beliefs. You will also look at the different methods used by sociologists to collect information and you will study the various theoretical perspectives that aim to explain why society is organised the way it is.
A number of specifications will be changing and prospectus entries are based on information we have to date. This means that course content may be subject to change.
A Level in Sociology is a valuable subject for a wide range of careers and higher education courses. You may wish to look specifically at areas which involve an understanding of people and social relationships such as journalism, health care, social work, education, the public services, marketing and management.
