Course Overview

AS Sociology develops knowledge and understanding of how contemporary society works. To understand this, you will look at aspects of society from different interpretations of people's experiences and develop an awareness of how society evolves.

In studying Sociology you will develop an awareness of how culture and identity influences our behaviour, appreciate the significance of theory and concepts in sociological debate and develop your skills in challenging accepted explanations in the context of equality and social diversity. Sociology encourages independent thinking and fosters a lifelong interest in social issues.

AS Sociology will be taught in one year and you can progress to A-Level Sociology in Year 2.

The course can be taken in the following ways:

- Within KC Sixth with another two, possibly three A-Levels, tutorial and optional EPQ and Core maths
- As an 'add on' to a Full Time Level 3 Study Programme at the College, for example alongside a BTEC Extended Diploma
- As a stand-alone part-time course
