What is Sociology?

Sociology seeks to explain the different forms of human society and looks at the impact of culture and social organisation on individual lives. Learners will reflect on their own experiences of the social world, and apply this to a variety of human cultures.


A sociologist's ability to form and defend an argument is just one of the many skills you will acquire in this subject.
