Sociology A Level at Sunderland College
Sociology is for people who have an interest in knowing why society works in the way that it does. It’s a useful subject that allows you to develop your own opinions of a range of topics.
If the first year of the course you will study component 1 and half of component 2, the remainder of the course will be studied in the 2nd year.
- Introducing socialisation, culture and identity
- Families & relationships
- Social research methods
- Understanding social inequalities (Gender, class, ethnicity, age)
- Globalisation & the digital social world
You’ll need at least five GCSEs at grade C or above including a grade B or above in either English Language or Literature.
The course is based in the classroom using a range of teaching and learning strategies including whole class teaching, group work and working individually.
Sociology opens a clear route to university where you can continue your studies. This could then lead to a career in industries such as teaching, social work, human resource management, journalism, youth work, police or a prison officer.
