Sociology at Andover College
Sociology enables us to study human society. It covers a variety of theoretical viewpoints which helps us understand how humans interact with the social world. Students will analyse how we go about acquiring our culture. You will also analyse and evaluate the issue of social control and then, assess social inequality in contemporary society. You will be taught and guided by an experienced team of staff who share a passion for the subject.
The successful student should be interested in the social world, have a keen interest in reading, literature and current affairs. You will be able to construct essays well and take a logical approach to problem solving.
