"Men were often called "breadwinners" because their income put food on the table... Although women were not usually called "breadservers," that was their role."

Leonard Beeghley


Sociology is studied at A Level at Feversham College.

Studying sociology offers insights into our society, social policies and cultural issues. It helps students to develop a multi-perspective and critical approach to understanding issues around culture, identity, religion, crime, childhood, family and education.

Sociology is a good choice of subject for people who aspire to a career in social work, nursing or medicine. The subject is also useful in a number of other careers such as marketing, advertising, PR, journalism, law and teaching.

A Level Sociology enhances students' skills and understanding in using evidence to support arguments, investigating facts, the importance of teamwork and it also encourages them to take responsibility for their own learning.

Throughout the course students will study the following:

  • Education
  • Crime and deviance
  • Families and households
  • Beliefs in society.
