What is Sociology?

Sociology is the study of the social world, and the behaviour of humans in a variety of situations. Several aspects of human behaviour are studied, creating an understanding of society in a changing world. Sociologists study a wide range of topics including class, gender, schools, childhood, power, media, social mobility, crime and poverty.

Through studying GCSE Sociology, students will:

    • study a range of social processes – education; family; crime and deviance; mass media; power; and social inequality
  • acquire knowledge and understanding of how society works
    • understand sociological methodology and a range of research methods
  • reflect on their own experience of the social world in which they live
    • develop their critical thinking
