Sociology with Criminology at Maiden Erlegh School

Course description

Sociology is the study of human societies. Sociologists ask questions such as why do people behave in the way that they do? Why do some individuals break society’s rules? How are societies held together and broken apart? Sociology is a new subject for most candidates, providing them with analytical skills to enable them to apply sociology to an understanding of modern societies and their own experiences. It deals with issues that are relevant and interesting and it broadens students’ understanding of their world and their place within it. Sociology provides a good preparation for many careers. Criminology, in particular, is a new and interesting area which many students like to pursue at university and into the work place.
