Sociology A level at Tupton Hall School

Course description

Sociology is the study of the ways in which individuals and groups live in societies. It looks beneath the surface of our ‘taken for granted’ world. The course consists of four modules overall. You will study Families and Households, and Education at AS level, before going on to investigate the Mass Media and Crime and Deviance at A2 level.

Entry requirements

No previous study of Sociology is necessary, but you will need at least a Grade C in English Language GCSE because essay writing is a large component of the course.

Future opportunities

Sociology, Social Psychology or Social Policy can be studied further at college or university. Sociology is a fundamental part of many professional studies such as the police, business, journalism, teaching, educational psychology, paramedical careers such as occupational or speech therapy, nursing, social work and a variety of others. As Sociology is about society and human behaviour, it complements many other subjects such as Law, Psychology, Politics, Economics, Geography, History, English and Health and Social Care.
