Sociology - A Level at Katharine Lady Berkeley's School

Course description

Are you interested in people? Would you like to understand why people behave the way that they do? If the answer is yes, you should study sociology. Sociologists are keen to study topics such as: crime and deviance; ‘the family’ and; the media. Sociologists attempt to provide answers to key questions in society such as: Why do people commit crime?; Is the family in decline in the contemporary UK?; Are individuals and groups treated fairly in society?; Why do certain groups underachieve in education?

Sociology is defined as the study of individuals and groups in society. Sociologists conduct research to gather evidence and answer important questions. Sociology is a very popular option at A Level and this exciting course allows students to debate and question the society we live in. Students are reminded that it is not essential to have studied the subject at GCSE to be accepted on the course. Sociology allows students to apply their experiences to sociological theory and ideas.
