Sociology

The AS Sociology course gives a solid introduction to this vibrant and ever-changing subject. The key topics include Families and Households and Education and Sociological Research Methods.

At A2, there is the opportunity to study topics in more depth and currently this includes: Crime and Deviance, Beliefs in Society and Sociological Theories and Methods. Lessons are generally tutorial in style where material is read and discussed together. Students work beyond lessons independently on a range of tasks.

There are opportunities to attend residential revision conferences and open days.

Some students read for a degree in sociology, but there is a wide range of other opportunities and students may go on to read degrees in English, History, Social Policy.  Business management, teaching and the law are just a few of the careers which sociology students may pursue. The opportunities are immense.
