Sociology, A Level

This programme teaches you to understand the five main sociological perspectives and apply these ideas to the academic study of society. The main topics covered on this A Level include culture, socialisation and identity, research methods, globalisation and beliefs.

A key feature of the social sciences is the application of subjective ideas. This subject offers a range of approaches to understand society, and interpretation and perception are a key part of this. It is important that before the start of the programme you take the time to research the subject and have a basic understanding of what sociology entails. Debates will often focus on cultural practices, looking at why some ideas are acceptable in some cultures and not acceptable in others, for example arranged marriage and the death penalty.

How will I be assessed?

Units are assessed through three exams at the end of year two.

What could I do after this course?

This programme is an ideal stepping-stone for study at degree-level in sociology, social work, international relations and social policy. You could also progress to the degree in BA (Hons) Uniformed and Public Services, BA (Hons) SEND and Inclusive Practice or a BA (Hons) in Education, Society and Childhood at University Centre Weston.
