A Level Sociology

Why Study?

Studying Sociology offers insights into social and cultural issues. Why do men commit more crime than women? Sociology explains possible reasons for why a gender gap exists. Alternatively do women commit more crime than men but are better at concealing their crimes? Is childhood disappearing? Do men and women share housework equally today? Why do British Chinese pupils outperform every pupil in the education system? In Sociology you will learn a range of new skills that will help you think critically, present reasoned arguments and better understand societal issues.
