Sociology A Level at La Retraite Roman Catholic Girls' School

Course description

In Sociology, we study the way people are affected by society, and how society is affected by people. Throughout the course, we examine the impact of the individual and the group using theoretical perspectives that originated with the industrial revolution, and ideas that take into account the rapid changes being wrought by globalisation, new technology and the mass media on contemporary society. By taking the subject, you become a much more informed, questioning and critical citizen of society. Furthermore, you will take away from Sociology a completely different way of thinking about the world around you.
