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.
