Sociology is the study of human behaviour and is unique in that it explains behaviour by studying how the social groups’ people belong to influence their actions and beliefs. When studying Sociology students will be expected to debate controversial issues and develop knowledge of key Sociologists and the work they have completed.

During the AS course the topics to be studied are Culture and Identity and Education with Sociological Research Methods. In the A2 course, students will study Beliefs in Society and Crime and Deviance with Sociological Theory and Research.
Students will be involved in group work, presentations, class discussions, essays and internet research.
