A Level Sociology at Bournemouth School for Girls
Sociology attracts students who are interested in current affairs and issues and in the society in which we all live.
As with other Social Science A levels, this links in very well with other subjects because the topics covered in the course are very cross-curricular.
Sociology can be of direct relevance and benefit to a whole host of careers, including Journalism, Nursing, Social Work, Local Government, Teaching, Advertising or Business.

Topics in Sociology
The syllabus assumes no previous study of Sociology at GCSE. It must be stressed that Sociology is not an "easy option". It is rigorous, and demands a dedicated and hard-working approach to the course if you are going to succeed.
As well as producing written assignments, you will be expected to read regularly and make relevant notes, take part in class discussions, watch DVDsvideos and prepare and present some aspect of a topic in class.
It is important to keep abreast of current affairs by reading one of the quality newspapers, listening to/watching the news regularly and watching relevant documentaries on television/online where appropriate.
