Course Overview

In studying Sociology you will develop an awareness of how our experience of education influences our behaviour. You will also study how work, poverty and welfare impact on our life chances and appreciate the significance of theory and concepts in sociological debate, developing your skills in challenging accepted explanations in the context of equality and social diversity.

In Year two you will develop your extended writing skills in tackling topic areas such as crime and deviance and beliefs in Society; this will be underpinned by continuing studying theory and methods in context.

This A-Level is awarded by AQA.

Year 1: Education, Work Poverty and Welfare, Research Methods

Year 2: Beliefs in Society, Crime and Deviance, Theory and Methods
