Why Study A Level Sociology?
A Level in Sociology offers students a challenging and stimulating course that is widely recognised and highly respected by universities as well as employers. The course covers a wide range of issues, ranging from youth culture to the exploration of inequalities in society. It is a subject which endeavours to explain social change in the past, present and future.
A former sixth form student currently studying Criminology at University said: “I recently finished an assignment and I’m so glad that I studied sociology. It has helped me massively during my first year. I’m learning about all the theories which I already knew because of the Crime and Deviance topic. I would definitely tell St Edward’s students that if they enjoy that unit then to study Criminology. It’s amazing and they will be very prepared already. I still miss the lessons a lot!”
Four components will be studied over the two year A Level Course.
Component 1 – Education
Component 2 – Families and Households
Component 3 – Crime and Deviance
Component 4 – The Media
