Sociology A level at Woking College
Sociology is the study how society is organised and why different social groups experience life in the way that they do. The study of sociology provides valuable insights into how human behaviour is shaped and influenced by the societal forces of group interaction. It offers an enlightening way of seeing and understanding the social world in which we live, looking beyond the taken-for-granted views of reality, to provide a deeper, more illuminating and challenging understanding of social life.
