You will learn about how society is organised and how we experience life, investigate different perspectives on a variety of societies, and apply this knowledge to examine and analyse these in new and thought-provoking ways. This will be through GCSE Sociology (AQA) at key stage 4. You can then broaden your experiences at key stage 5 in A level Sociology (OCR) where you will demonstrate your ability to acquire knowledge and a critical understanding of contemporary social processes and social changes and formulate clear, logical arguments with scope for extensive evaluation from a range of theoretical perspectives.
