Sociology AS and A Level online course overview

In a rapidly changing world, AS and Sociology A Level online, offers students the opportunity not only to explore the processes that are shaping current trends, but also to develop an understanding of the complexity and diversity of human societies and their continuities with the past.

The study of Sociology A Level online should stimulate awareness of contemporary social, cultural and political issues, and focus attention on the importance of examining these issues in a rigorous, reasoned and analytical way. The Cambridge International AS Level provides a solid grounding in the central ideas and approaches in Sociology, including family as well as theory and methods. Sociology A Level online students can choose to explore a variety of important areas of sociological enquiry including global development, education, religion and media.

AS Sociology students study the family and social change with particular reference to: family roles, marriage, changing relationships and the social construction of age. Candidates also study methods of research and the relationship between theory and methods.

Sociology A level online candidates study units in education, global development, media and religion
