Sociology at Prospect is an interesting and exciting course about issues that affect everyday lives. We aim to give students a critical understanding of British society. It is thought provoking and controversial and so a general interest in discussing current moral and social issues is essential. Students will study units on key social structures:
- Families and Households
- Mass Media
- Crime and Deviance
There is also a unit on sociological theories and research methodology.
Good communication and presentation skills will be a real asset. Good essay writing skills. Understanding of research methods.
- GCSE English at grade 5 or above.
- Four other GCSE grade 5 (or equivalent) or above.
Sociology is valuable for those students interested in Higher Education or considering a job in the professions such as law, media, public services and teaching. The subject is also very relevant to management training and the business world.
