Sociology is the study of human social relationships and institutions.

It is a very diverse subject area ranging from crime to religion, from the family to the state, from the divisions of race and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture, and from social stability to radical change in whole societies. The GCSE Sociology course enables the student to develop an understanding of these important aspects of society whilst developing critical thinking and analytical skills.
