How do we live the way we do?
- A-level Sociology is a highly respected academic discipline and is widely accepted for many university degree courses and amongst employers.
- Sociology is a subject for people who would like a career in the police, probation service, law, criminology, social work, journalism,PR, management and teaching, for example.
- Sociology works extremely well with other A-level subjects, such as Psychology, Law, Government and Politics and English for example.
Any special requirements?
It is important that students have an interest in why people act in certain ways and are aware of current affairs and social issues. Some students may have studied sociology at GCSE, but this isn't necessary to study it at A-level. However, if students have studied GCSE Sociology, then they should have achieved at least a grade C/4.
