Sociology A level at Cleveland College of Art and Design

Course description

This course offers students the opportunity to develop the essential knowledge and understanding of central aspects of sociological thought and methods. It allows us to understand individual problems in their proper social context and reflect upon the ways in which everyday life, such as family relationships, education, and work, are conditioned by forms of social organisation and social systems.

Topics students will cover include: socialisation, culture and identity, social differentiation, power and stratification, crime and deviance and research methods.

Students who are curious and openminded will benefit greatly from this course as it allows students to critically examine the collective ideas, shared behaviours and social forces that shape our everyday lives, and explore societies and cultures different from our own.

Therefore it complements our range of art A-Levels as it allows learners to think in a way that varies from their own thinking.

Course content

A fascinating range of topics that will give students an insight into socialisation, culture and identity

Entry requirements

Five GCSEs at A*-B and maths and English minimum C grade.

On successful completion of the course students will have the skills and qualifications needed to progress onto a wide range of courses at foundation or degree level, or to go directly into industry.
