Sociology skills

2 year learning journey 




Studying sociology provides a better understanding of the following: 

  • Reasons for social differences, including differences in social behaviour
  • Reasons for the differentials in group opportunities and outcomes
  • The relevance of social hierarchies and social power in everyday life

As well as developing a deep understanding of modern societies and how they are changing today, students acquire a wide range of transferable skills such as the ability to write clearly and analytically about complex issues, to engage effectively in argument and debate, to analyse qualitative and quantitative data and to conduct independent research.

Sociology careers


Students are assessed within sociology through their 5 a day quizzing, extended writing to exam questions, end of topic mock papers and a termly assessment. 


Students receive feedback on their classwork that is completed in their books. Students also receive feedback when end of topic mock exams and termly assessments are completed: detailed feedback is given and students have opportunities to re-draft their work based on the advice and guidance given.
