Sociology at Halewood Academy

Course description

Within the first term of the AS course students will be given a general introduction to sociology. Students will learn about key sociological concepts and they will come to understand the main theories involved in this social science. The AQA GCE Sociology specification has been designed so that students will acquire the essential knowledge and understanding of central aspects of sociological thought and methods, together with the application of a range of skills.

Students will focus primarily on the topics of family and education at AS Level and the mass media and crime and deviance at A2. The course has also been designed to allow the integration of sociological themes such as socialisation, culture and identity and class structure across all topics.
