Sociology

Introduction

Sociology looks at how society works and how the various parts of society relate to each other. Core features of the course include the different views sociologists have about a subject like family or education. Studying Sociology will offer you insights into social and cultural issues like gender equality. It helps you develop a multi-dimensional perspective of, and critical approach to, issues surrounding culture, identity, religion, crime, childhood and social power.

GCSE Sociology will provide a firm platform on which to approach A Level Sociology. Sociology is a well-respected qualification that links well with other subject disciplines. Sociology is a useful qualification in a number of careers like: Law, Police work, Media, Journalism, Nursing, Social work, Probation services, Research and the Civil Service. It also provides valuable knowledge and transferable skills that would be useful in the world of Business and Commerce.
