Sociology Department

Sociology is offered as an option subject at Chace at KS4 and 5. The subject helps students to gain knowledge and understanding of the world around them and the social processes that affect human behaviour.  

Students will develop their analytical, assimilation and communication skills by comparing and contrasting perspectives on a variety of social issues, constructing reasoned arguments, making substantiated judgements and drawing reasoned conclusions.By studying sociology, students will develop transferable skills including how to: investigate facts and make deductions, develop opinions and new ideas on social issues and analyse and better understand the social world.

Sociology is particularly relevant to jobs that involve working directly with people or any job that requires the use of problem solving skills. You could become involved in the worlds of law, journalism, politics, social work, social research, the police or probation service. Alternatively, a career in education, the Armed Forces, management, human resources, medicine, the emergency services, media... any career involving working with people.
