Sociology A Level at Paulet 6th Form College

Course description

Sociology is the systematic study of groups and organisations. Who really runs our society? Are we all in it together or are we in conflict with each other? What are we really being taught at school? What is the role of religion in modern society? What is the impact of immigration? If I want to study divorce should I interview a divorcee or look at the official statistics? Sociology is not common sense; sociology will give you the skills to look at your world in a completely different way.
