Welcome to A level Sociology
What is sociology?
Sociology is the study of society. You will learn how society works and how it shapes people’s behaviour, culture, identity and opportunities. You will explore the relationships between people, their social groups and institutions around them. Sociologists try to understand the world around us, but they rarely agree with each other giving us different perspectives.
Sociology provides an exciting opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the social, economic and political aspects of the contemporary UK and to reflect on social issues relevant to your own experiences.
