Sociology Curriculum

Curriculum Statement

A level Sociology focuses upon the function and relationships of society within contemporary society. The four distinct units (education, families households, beliefs in society, and crime & deviance) act as different foci for learners, whilst still focusing upon the common themes of identify, socialisation, culture, and the stratification of society. Other common threads that run through the course are the theoretical views of differing groups such as Marxist, functionalist new right and feminist. Together, this forms a cohesive and comprehensive study of the role and function both of society as a whole – and the individuals within it.
