SOCIOLOGY


SOCIOLOGY IS THE STUDY OF HUMAN SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS, INSTITUTIONS, DEVELOPMENT AND ORGANISATION.


WHAT YOU STUDY

Sociology’s subject matter is diverse, ranging from the family and education to crime and religion, from the divisions of race and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture, and from social stability to radical change in whole societies. Social researchers draw upon a variety of qualitative and quantitative techniques to gather sociological evidence. This will focus on analysing interviews and statistics.

 

HOW YOU STUDY

We use a variety of teaching methods which include the use of ICT, research tasks, problem solving, theoretical questions, debate and discussions. You will be expected to work independently but also have opportunities to complete group work, research tasks and enhance communications skills with presentations.

Progression to university this qualification offers an engaging and effective introduction to Sociology. Students will learn the fundamentals of the subject and develop skills valued by higher education and employers, including critical analysis, independent thinking and research.

Like subjects such as Geography, Sociology encompasses elements of scientific enquiry and also more humanities based approaches. As a result, sociology students are expected to develop a broad range of transferable skills, including research, essay writing and statistical analysis.

 

OTHER RELATED DEGREE COURSES

Sociology is part of a social science group of subjects and intersects with other social sciences such as Politics, Economics, Law, Psychology and Statistics. If you are interested in human social behaviour it can provide the back bone to degrees also linked to Anthropology, English, and Criminology. Other career links include youth work, community welfare, social work and teaching.
