COURSE OVERVIEW
Our A-Level Sociology course here at The Northern School of Art offers you the opportunity to develop the essential knowledge and understanding of central aspects of sociological thought and methods. It allows us to understand individual problems in their proper social context and reflect upon the ways in which everyday life, such as family relationships, education, and work, are conditioned by forms of social organisation and social systems.
COURSE DETAILS
Topics students will cover include socialisation, culture and identity, social differentiation, power and stratification, crime and deviance, and research methods. Students who are curious and open minded will benefit greatly from this course as it allows students to critically examine the collective ideas, shared behaviours and social forces that shape our everyday lives, and explore societies and cultures different from our own. The course complements our range of Art-based A-Levels as it allows learners to think in a way that varies from their own thinking. On successful completion of an A-Level programme of study, which includes this course, you will have the skills and qualifications needed to progress onto a wide range of courses at foundation or degree level, or go directly into industry employment.
