Sociology A Level at Neale-Wade Academy
A one year course gains an AS qualification. A two year course offers an A-Level qualification.
In terms of the history of life on Earth, it’s only yesterday that mankind was living in the caves, and the day before when we were swinging from branch to branch with the other creatures. And yet in what is really the blink of an eye we have developed
into a complex society with a wide number of problems and opportunities to live with. And it’s those factors which affect how our species, and the tribes and family groups within it, works on a day to day basis. Over a fascinating two year period you’ll cover
a spectrum of subjects which, between them, will help you make sense of the society we live in and understand the culture and identity issues which affect us all.
Studying sociology offers insights into social and cultural issues. It helps you develop a multi-perspective and critical approach to understanding issues around culture, identity, religion, crime, childhood and social power. More than once during the
course you’re bound to ask yourself the question, “why have we developed like this. Poverty, ignorance, crime, injustice ... shouldn’t we have left
them in the Stone Age?
5 A*-C GCSE Grades inluding a B in English and Maths
Both the AS qualification and the A level qualification are assess by written exams
Sociology is a great choice of subject for people who want a career in social work, nursing or medicine. But the subject is also useful in a number of other careers, like marketing, advertising. PR, journalism, law or teaching
