Sociology at Wimbledon College
Sociology promotes imagination and criticism. Through an introduction to a variety of ways of looking at societies it challenges our taken-for-granted assumptions of how things are. No coursework is offered. Mass Media, Poverty, Wealth and Welfare, Power and Politics. This course goes especially well with politics.
To follow the advanced Level 3 route you must have 5 or more GCSEs at Grade C or above. You just have Grade B in the AS level subject options you wish to study or Grade C in applied subject options.
You could take this course to complement other advanced level courses or to prepare for the A2 part of an Advanced GCE in Sociology, which could lead you onto higher education in one or more of the Social Sciences such as Sociology, Development Studies, Anthropology or more general higher education courses. With further training, you could go into a job related to Sociology and people such as a Social Worker, Teacher, Social Researcher or a more general position working within the Social Services. You could also go straight into a job as the AS GCE is a recognised qualification that will help you develop the skills, understanding and knowledge that many employers across lots of industries are looking for, especially in the health and social care sectors.
To find out more about this qualification, contact us, ask your Connexions Personal Adviser or school/college careers staff.
