You will be introduced to the theories, methods and methodologies necessary to analyse the following topics:
- Culture and socialisation
- Methods and methodology
- Youth culture and subculture
- Crime, deviance, victimisation
- Social stratification
- Measurement of inequality

Your progress will be regularly assessed by tests and coursework, with regular feedback and guidance being offered for constant improvement.
There may be some additional costs during the course for trips and visits to further your learning.
