Sociology Course

About the Level 3 Sociology Certificate

Broadly speaking, sociology is the study of human society. It is important for professionals to conduct research in this field so that we can understand the systems and behaviours of different social groups. Experts in sociology also help us to identify societal problems and devise ways to improve these situations. Embarking on a Level 3 sociology course with Stonebridge College will help you to start thinking like a sociologist.

During your online studies, you will learn about a number of different social systems, evaluate the socialisation process and pinpoint the various issues that impact society. Altogether, the course has seven modules and will take approximately 150 hours to complete. However this is a home learning course and at Stonebridge College, we encourage our students to take all the time they need to complete the work.

Who should study this course?

This course has been designed for people who want to develop a deeper understanding of human society. Whether you want to progress to university or you simply have an interest in people watching, this course will help you to achieve your goals.

At Stonebridge College, we don't ask that you have any prior qualifications or experience before you enrol on our sociology distance learning course. All we ask is that you have an interest in the topic and the motivation to engage in home study.

What happens after the course?

On successful completion of your online course, you will have a foundation knowledge in sociology. You be able to name a number of common social institutions and have an understanding of important social issues.

Having gained your Level 3 qualification, you may choose to study sociology at a higher level. If you did want to progress to degree level, you may consider embarking on our Access to HE Diploma (Social Science) and applying to university.

Alternatively, you may choose to use your qualification to find work straight away. Whatever you choose to do, you can guarantee that this home study sociology course will help you on your way. Careers related to the study of sociology include:

  • Social researcher
  • Social worker
  • Human resource officer
