About The Course

Ever wondered how we developed into the society we are today? How the way you see yourself determines the way people identify you? Whether men or women are more likely to commit a crime?

If you are interested in the above, then A Level Sociology is for you. You will learn a number of skills including the use of evidence to support your arguments, how to investigate facts, and critical thinking. If you are interested in the world and want to see beyond the stale paradigms and develop a critical mind, to anticipate and imagine a world free from inequalities, then sociology is for you.

Studying sociology will make you more aware of the society you exist in and enable you to gain a valuable insight into human social behaviour. For many students, this will be a new and exciting subject, which opens the door to a fantastic range of interesting careers.

You will study a wide range of interesting and exciting sociology topics over the two years, such as:

  • Culture and identity
  • Education with research methods
  • Mass media
  • Crime and deviance

What We Add

We have a well-stocked library to inspire and engage students in the contemporary study of society. We organise trips to museums (for example the Museum of Anthropology in Cambridge) and we engage in primary research as often as possible. All you need is a pen and a passion for learning about society.
