A Level Sociology

Course Information

Sociology is the study of group life and those parts of our individual lives that are affected by social interaction, for example, Education, Crime, the Workplace.

Its beginning point is the assumption that we are social animals from birth, that is, that we are powerfully influenced by other people’s expectations.

Sociologists argue that you can’t make sense of your behaviour, much less the patterns of behaviour in families, corporations, or nations, without developing a quality of mind which sociologists term ‘the sociological imagination.’

Students learn a lot about the society they have lived in and the systems they have grown up in. It gives people a new perspective and students often never think about things the same way again.
