AS/A Level Sociology

Sociology is literally the study of society.  The place we live, the place we work, the place we call home.  But why is it so important, and why do some people find it so interesting?

Studying A Level Sociology at Gateshead College is your opportunity to delve into the complex and compelling world around us using expert and innovative teachers and techniques.  Where others teach to the text book and the exam, we immerse you in subject to the point where it becomes an innate habit to analyse everything you see and hear from a sociological viewpoint. Having excellent links with local organisations allows our students to experience knowledge from all perspectives; universities, law courts, and the probation service all help in offering an experience unique to Gateshead College and one which inspires students to go on and study the subject at university and beyond. A Level Sociology leads to a vast array of career opportunities from teaching through to social work, and equips you with the skills and knowledge to grasp your future goals with both hands.
