Have you ever wondered how we developed into the society we are today? How influential is the media on our life choices? Why are men more likely to commit a crime? Is educational failure or success a result of intelligence or is there more?
A level Sociology will help you to make sense of the society we live in and understand the cultural and identity issues which affect us all. It examines the impact of our social class, gender, and ethnicity on our futures.
You will learn various skills, including the use of evidence to support your arguments, how to investigate facts, and critical thinking. You will develop a knowledge of society, alongside the ability to critically evaluate and analyse information. The relevance of sociology to everyone makes your learning relevant to everyday life.
A level Sociology can lead to degree courses such as social science and humanities. The study of sociology could lead to careers in public relations, teaching, government, management and business, journalism, social work, probation service, youth and community work, or nursing.
