Subject Leader: Mrs N Forrest
Sociology helps students to make sense of the complex society in which we live – providing a variety of perspectives and asking deeply rooted questions. These questions will include ‘what is the cause of crime?’, ‘is everyone treated fairly?’ and ‘how does our upbringing impact upon our lives?’ Students will consider how sociologists research these areas and in addressing these questions we investigate issues relating to social class, age, gender and ethnicity. Throughout the course students will develop many transferable and highly sought-after skills such as the ability to provide evidence based research and arguments; investigate facts and use deduction; critically analyse and evaluate; empathise and understand others.
