Course Overview

It’s often said that the function of sociology is to reveal that which is hidden; why do people behave the way they do? What governs our everyday interactions, and what drives social change? If you’re fascinated by questions like these, then look no further. As a cornerstone social science, sociology overlaps several unique disciplines that study society, such as economics, psychology, and political science. It provides a range of essential, transferable skills including analysis, problem solving, critical thinking, and research, all of which are invaluable in just about any career, as well as higher education.

On this engaging, online A-level course, you’ll examine sociological theories, perspectives, and methods. You’ll discover the role that education plays in the process of socialisation, as well as the nature of childhood and family life. You’ll study the role of the media in contemporary society, and examine globalisation and popular culture. Finally, you’ll delve into crime and deviance, taking a close look at the factors that impact criminal behaviour, as well as the societal roles and responsibilities of the criminal justice system. 

This distance learning course follows the new AQA A-Level Sociology syllabus and has been designed specifically to be studied online in your own time and space. You’ll have unlimited tutor support, a clear induction, and well-structured assignments to help you to develop the skills and knowledge needed to prepare for the exam.
