Sociology A level at Woodbridge High School
The aim of sociology is to investigate areas of social importance such as the education system, the family and politics. We also explore how sociologists investigate society, and how common–sense perceptions about what is happening in our world often do not stand up to scientific research.
- Sociological methods
- Culture and socialisation
- The Family
At least a Grade B in English Language or English Literature. It is an advantage to have sound grades in subjects related to Sociology such as History, Religious Studies, Geography and Media Studies.
All of the units are assessed in an examination. There are three exams at the end of year 13. We follow the WJEC exam board for A Level Sociology.
This course provides a foundation for the further study of sociology and related subjects in higher education. Sociology also provides an important grounding for careers in education, the law, media, the caring professions and social services.
It is also a very important general qualification that all employers view favourably as it gives an excellent general knowledge of the world, an ability to understand how society operates and how problems can be addressed. Sociology students go on into a wide variety of jobs.
