A Level

"I have really enjoyed the Sociology course at Christ the King and the teaching has been absolutely excellent. The course has opened my eyes to the society I live in and the many issues that affect people around the world."

What will I study?

A Level Sociology is a fascinating subject to study. It will develop your critical skills, enable you to evaluate sociological thinking and quite probably change the way you see the world and your place in it.

You will consider Sociology in the context of:

  • Education
  • Family
  • Methods
  • Crime and Deviance
  • Beliefs
  • Theory/Method

This course gives you the opportunity to examine influential theories of society and to reflect on your own experience of the social world and apply it to the systematic study of society.

What do I need to study this course?

GCSE English (Grade 9-5).

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is by examination.

Where will A Level Sociology lead me?

This is an excellent course to study as it combines well with all other A Level subjects. Sociology students have gone on to study Sociology and other related degrees such as Social Science, Anthropology, Cultural Studies and Development Studies. Sociology is also very useful for a wide range of careers including Social Work, Nursing, Teaching, Marketing, Media, Housing, Community Services, Policing and the Legal Professions.
