Sociology is designed to give students an understanding of human social behaviour and to appreciate the various influences on their behaviour. Students are encouraged to have a general interest in the world around them, and to be prepared to consider various points of view on an issue, or appreciate several schools of thought.

This course is a popular choice. It is not necessary to have taken GCSE Sociology to do this course, though those who have will find it useful. It combines well with any A Level course offered in the Sixth Form.

Sociology could lead to many possible careers, including Management, Social Work, Local and Central Government, Teaching, Lecturing, Journalism, Medicine, Law, and other similar professional opportunities.
