Studying your A-Level

Sociology is the study of how people interact in groups. A-Level Sociology examines social behaviour from a variety of perspectives, how it originates and then develops.

The course also explores the ways people are organised into groups according to distinctions such as class, gender and race.

You will also be asked to understand the concepts of culture and identity. This will include the different conceptions of culture, the self, identity and the relationship of identity to age, gender, ethnicity, sexuality etc.

The course will also challenge you to understand how the media can impact on society including representation, the presentation of news and biases.

You’ll explore the links between health, poverty, crime and welfare. This will include the distribution of wealth, the persistence of poverty and unequal social distribution. Your studies will be underpinned by sociological theory and methodologies.

When you have completed this A-Level you will have developed sociological awareness through active engagement with the contemporary social world.

Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you will find A-Level Sociology difficult depends on your learning style, but it can be incredibly rewarding for those who find themselves fascinated by the world around them. It's lighter on content than sciences, and more discussion-based, so you might find it enjoyable if you like analysing human behaviour, applying theories to real-world issues, and debating different perspectives. If critical thinking and understanding society at a deeper level intrigue you, this online Sociology A-Level could be a fascinating, accessible path to explore diverse ideas and their impact on our world.
An A-Level in Sociology equips you with a critical lens to dissect society, from analysing power structures to understanding family dynamics. You'll explore diverse theories, analyse real research, and develop strong analytical and communication skills. This opens doors to a wide range of university courses and careers, from social work and psychology to law and business, all while preparing you to be a more informed and engaged citizen in a complex world.
With an A-Level in Sociology alone, you can open doors to roles like teaching assistant, research assistant, community support worker, or even law enforcement trainee, while building skills valuable for customer service, marketing, and HR. Combine your A-Level with a related degree in social sciences, psychology, or law, and you unlock a wider spectrum, landing careers like social worker, youth worker, policy analyst, marketing researcher, or even journalist, all equipped to understand and tackle the intricate challenges of our society.
Yes, it is! Our A-Level Sociology course is studied completely online at home, so you can relax and enjoy the learning at your pace, and at a time that suits your lifestyle.
No, your exam is not included in this version of our Sociology A-Level course. Please see our alternative option where the exam is included.
