Sociology

AQA Sociology

What is the course about?

Sociology explores people and society. It examines our social institutions; our families, the state and social relationships like gender and ethnicity, to help make sense of how we both see and interpret our rapidly changing world.

Sociology will provide you with a diverse learning experience it will teach you to look at the society around you in a brand new way. Sociology has developed an exciting range of theories that question how society is organised. You will understand more about how the UK’s society has developed and the forces that shape our behaviour and values. You will learn to understand other people’s points of view, to communicate your own position clearly and to argue effectively.
