Hartpury College


Course Overview

Sociology A-level offers you the opportunity to know and understand the central aspects of sociological thought and methods, together with the application of a range of skills. It has also been designed to allow the integration of sociological themes, such as socialisation, culture and identity, and social differentiation, power and stratification.

If you are interested in how and why people think and behave in the way that they do, in how social order is maintained, if you enjoy researching and debating topical issues and have an interest in how the police and legal system operate, then this is ideal for you.

Our students have gone on to some fantastic careers in a wide range of industries and enjoyed some exceptional work placements all over the world, helping them open doors to their dream careers. You can read our students’ stories here
