COURSE DESCRIPTION

There has never been a better time to study GCSE sociology. With the social impact of the events of the past year affecting all of us, sociologists are fascinated to explore the effects of what has been described as the ‘greatest social experiment of modern times’. 

Many students say that what they particularly love about the study of sociology is that everybody can relate to the topics that are covered. For example, we all have differing experiences of childhood and families, and all of us cannot help but be influenced by the growing tentacles of the media which increasingly infiltrates modern life. Perhaps you are interested in what makes people become criminals, or the growing class divide in education? Sociology has it all! A GCSE in sociology doesn’t feel like hard work, there is always a new perspective to consider, or a question open to debate! It is not surprising that so many students go on to study Sociology post 16, leading to careers in the Prison service, Counselling and Psychotherapy, and Social Work to name but a few. 

The course will fully prepare students to achieve at GCSE level with the AQA exam board aiming to sit the exam in one or two years .The teacher will advise students/parents when each student is likely to be ready.

Please note that you need to find an exam centre, school or college which accepts external candidates for this paper.
