Sociology A Level
Why study this subject?
Sociology is the study of individuals, groups and the way that they act together in society. Sociologists do
not simply accept what people say is true. Rather, they investigate and provide evidence to probe beneath
the surface of society to find out what is actually going on.
The A Level Sociology Course will help you to understand your place in the social world and will provide
you with an insight into social trends and issues outside of your personal experience.
Entry Requirements
Students need to gain five A*-C grade GCSEs including Mathematics at grade 4, grade 5 in English Language
and English Literature, plus a B grade in Sociology if studied.
There is no coursework to complete in Sociology at A Level. It is assessed entirely by examination.
Three written exams:
 Paper 1: Education with Theory and Methods
 Paper 2: ‘Families and Households’ and ‘Beliefs in Society’
 Paper 3: Crime and Deviance with Theory and Methods
Future courses and possible careers
A Level Sociology is considered to be an excellent academic asset which provides students with research
skills as well as the ability to present material in both oral and written form. It is therefore respected by
universities and employers alike. Possible career areas might include Management and Administration,
Sales and Marketing, Health and Social Welfare, Teaching and Finance.
