GCE  AS & A Level

The subject follows University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) 9699 and has a lot of appeal for students in an International school setting for a number of reasons.

Firstly, the diverse population provides great opportunity to study human behaviour as it pertains to human interaction. Secondly the interaction between humans is more complex than the interaction between any other animal species. Sociology examines the pulse of any given society, or really if you like, ‘What makes any organized group tick?’

This GCE Sociology specification has been designed so that candidates will acquire the essential knowledge and understanding of central aspects of sociological thought and methods, together with the application of a range of skills. It has also been designed to allow the integration of sociological themes, such as socialisation, culture and identity, and social differentiation, power and stratification.

The specification lays an appropriate foundation for further study of Sociology and related subjects in higher education. In addition, it provides a worthwhile course for candidates of various ages and from diverse backgrounds in terms of general education and lifelong learning. Equally, material studied would be useful for candidates intending to pursue careers in the field of Social Sciences.
