Sociology

This new GCSE explores key sociological concepts, thinkers and research methodology. The first part of the course will investigate sociological thought in specific social contexts including criminal justice, education, the work place and the mass media. In the second part of the course, pupils will develop their understanding of the research methods used in sociological enquiry and will learn to construct effective research models appropriate to different research purposes.  Sociology will appeal to anyone who enjoys being challenged by new ideas, is interested in the world around them and wishes to develop their powers of critical thinking and analysis.
