Sociology at Rainhill Sixth Form

Course description

This is a subject that challenges your everyday experiences. It is the study of the relationship between the individual and society. Have you ever wondered why people exhibit a certain behaviour or how we become the people that we are? If so, the Sociology A Level course offers you an opportunity to explore a deeper understanding of the social world, by examining social influences, such as, families, schools, friends, and the media. Consideration of how and why such groups and institutions function will enable you to examine how individuals both create society and are created by it. It is an exciting and demanding course which aims to develop valuable academic and social skills. Critical awareness, political literacy and informed opinion are encouraged on this course, with the ultimate aim of developing the whole person.
