In Sociology students develop a wide range of knowledge and understanding about society, and how sociologists study and understand its structures, processes and issues. Sociology is exciting, interesting and relevant to students’ lives. Sociology is the study of human social relationships and institutions.
Sociology’s subject matter is diverse, ranging from crime to religion, from the family to the state, from the divisions of race and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture. The purpose of Sociology is to understand how human actions both shape and are shaped by surrounding cultural and social structures.
Key Stage 4
Sociology students study a diverse range of topics such as the sociology of families, education, crime & deviance, social stratification and underpinning all of this is sociological theory and research methods. Students learn to develop a range of skills including interpretation of data, analysis, interpretation and evaluation. Students are encouraged to develop an ability to question patterns and explanations for social changes taking place. It is therefore essential that students possess an interest in current social affairs. Students are taught in mixed ability classes.
