Sociology at Isleworth & Syon School for Boys

Course description

The course aims to develop critical understanding of concepts, theories and methods involved in the study of society and to apply what is learned to an analysis of contemporary society. The units undertaken are as follows: AS * Culture & Identity (Introduction to Sociology) * Unit 1: Families & Households (40% AS; 20%A Level) * Unit 2: Education & Sociological Methods (60%; 30%) A2 * Unit 3: Beliefs in Society (20% A Level)) * Unit 4: Crime & Deviance & Theory and Methods (30%) The course will be of interest to those who would like to spend time getting to grips with how and why things are the way they are. Margaret Thatcher famously decreed that there is no such thing as society, but sociologists feel that there is much to be learned from the way in which we behave as members of various groups and communities, and much to be learned, too, about the way in which institutions operate in society. The course is notable for questioning what we most often take for granted, and, as a result, makes us think.
