Sociology A level
Sociology is an exciting and dynamic subject that students will have the opportunity to study in sixth form. It is the study of how humans shape the world and how they interact with one another within society. The subject challenges students to show awareness and to think carefully about their day to day experiences as well as giving opportunities to form judgements and conclusions about how society is organised and the world that we live in.
