Sociology

Head of Department: Mrs F. Bridgman

Sociology is the study of society and human social behaviour. It explores how and why we act in the way we do.

At A-Level, students follow the AQA course in Sociology. Students are given the opportunity to look both at how the world shapes us as individuals and how it moulds our behaviour as a society. We examine different theories that explain human behaviour and debate the impact the world around us has on our lives. Through the study of Sociology, students will learn how to research different theories, concepts and arguments, and how to assess the usefulness of different explanations of the world around us.
