Course Description: Sociology is the study of society. Sociologists are interested in the
interaction that takes place between groups and individuals within and contrasting with
other societies. They offer theories that provide explanations for the way in which we as
individuals can shape the society and the impact society has upon the individual.
Sociologists tend not to agree, so this course equips students with the ability to think
critically, analyse, evaluate, debate and how to write an essay.
