Sociology at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College

Course description

Sociology is the study of human societies. Sociologists are most interested in the causes and consequences of social behaviour, such as crime or discrimination.

The subject encourages students to develop analytical and evaluative skills and question aspects of society which may have previously been taken for granted.

Sociology is highly regarded by universities and employers, particularly in areas such as the Social Sciences, Law, Journalism, the caring professions and most careers which involved working with people. So if you have an enquiring mind, an interest in current social issues and a willingness to explore a variety of explanations of the world around you, then Sociology is the subject for you.
