Sociology A Level at Corelli College Co-Operative Academy

Course description

Course Outline

A Level Sociology is a 2 year course which offers students a scientific study of their society. It examines the social relationships people share with each other in the various social contexts (e.g. in their families, schools and work) and through it formulates an understanding of how society works and develops.

On the course you will examine the key sociological themes, such as socialisation, culture and identity, social differentiation, power and stratification. Through these examinations, you will develop an understanding of the various sociological thought, approaches and methods, together with the application of a range of analytical and research skills.

Through your sociology studies you’ll understand more about the development of societies and the forces which shape behaviour, values and identity.
