About your Diploma

By studying Sociology, you will open your eyes to the complexities of society, and why collective groups within it think and behave the way they do. The human world is inherently intricate, and many aspects need to be taken into consideration to understand how it has been shaped over time. 
 
You can start to piece together this puzzle by studying GCSE Sociology and looking at everything that makes our society what it is today. Coming to terms with key social structures, processes and issues by examining families, education, crime and deviance and social stratification.
 
Through this field of study, you will expand your analytical, assimilation and communication skills by comparing and contrasting perspectives on numerous social issues, building reasoned arguments, making validated judgements and drawing rational conclusions.
 
The course also teaches you how to apply different research methods to diverse sociological contexts, helping you to better analyse and understand the social world. Upon successful completion of this course, you can further explore social studies at a higher level and pursue careers in areas like Youth Work, Social Research, Community Development and more.
