Sociology A level at Stratford-upon-Avon College

Course description

Why do people behave the way that they do? What makes you who you are? How do families, education and belief shape identity, and why do people commit crime?

These are all questions that you will study as part of Sociology. If you are a “people person” and fascinated by these questions, come and join us. You will consider the explanations offered by sociologists for the way that people behave and you will look at the research evidence on which these explanations are based. The study of sociology is rich and diverse and can lead to further study in many professional areas, such as Teaching and Childcare, Law, Occupational Therapy, Communications and Social Work.
