The Sociology curriculum is aiming to create young Sociologists who evaluate society around them and allow them to gain an appreciation of how and why society works in the way that it does.
Students will develop an understanding of the social world which ultimately shapes their lives. Recognising how both their individual experience and world view are products of the historical context to which they belong and their everyday immediate environment.
Sociology provides them with the knowledge they need to critically analyse and understand key events and how they are linked to the main forces and institutions that shape the modern world. This knowledge is accompanied by the literary and oratory skills they need to contribute to the big debates of our time, with the confidence to challenge social injustice and at the same time promoting a sense of agency.
