Sociology explores the way in which society works, it is the systematic study of the way people live and behave. Students will develop a wide range of knowledge and understanding about society, and how sociologists study and understand its structures, processes and issues.

Sociology is exciting, interesting and relevant to students’ lives. Both the Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5 programmes of study encourage students to take a questioning approach to evidence and issues, thus developing their critical, evaluative skills.
