Sociology GCE AS/A (From 2015)
WJEC's GCE specification in Sociology allows learners the opportunity to develop an understanding of changing British society as well as opportunities to learn about sociological methods and research. The choice of topics can be used to support vocational studies such as health and social care, nursing and social work. The course is also a suitable foundation for the study of sociology or a related area of higher education courses such as criminology or law. Learners will be offered a choice of topics that include families, youth culture, the community, education, religion, mass media, crime, politics, health and disability, social divisions and world sociology. The emphasis on skills allows learners to develop and demonstrate their 'sociological imagination' by focusing on their own personal identity, responsibilities and roles within society.
