This course will make you look at the world in new and exciting ways. You will learn how the society you are born into decides your language, dress codes, food, religion and many everyday
rituals and behaviours. You will find out how the family, education, the criminal justice system and the mass media affect each one of us. It will help you to develop a critical awareness,
and learn about issues you may not have thought about before, such as class, gender and race inequalities.
Lessons include presentations, discussions, debates, newspapers, magazines, internet sources, extended reading and outside speakers.
Future Prospects: Sociology is valuable for many careers – including Government, Commerce, Social Work, Journalism, the Media, Law and Market Research.
