GCSE Sociology helps pupils to gain knowledge and understanding of key social structures, processes and issues through the study of families, education, crime and deviance and social stratification.

Pupils will develop their analytical, assimilation and communication skills by comparing and contrasting perspectives on a variety of social issues, constructing reasoned arguments, making substantiated judgements and drawing reasoned conclusions.

 

By studying sociology, pupils will develop transferable skills including how to:

• investigate facts and make deductions.

• develop opinions and new ideas on social issues.

• analyse and better understand the social world.

 

Pupils study key ideas of classical sociologists including Durkheim, Marx and Weber, referencing their view of the world and their contribution to the development of the discipline.

Pupils will also learn how to apply various research methods to different sociological contexts. They will be introduced to sociological terms and concepts concerned with social structures, social processes and social issues.

 

Key themes studied include:

• Sociological research methods
• Families, structures, roles and relationships
• Education and class
• Social stratification
• Poverty and deprivation
• Political power
• Crime and criminality
