Teaching & Learning

The department aims to:
Encourage students to 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
• analyse and better understand the social world.

The Sociology Department has one teaching room within the Humanities base. The classroom has a computer, smartboard and webcam. The department shares six computers and a bank of laptops with the Geography and History department. All ICT facilities are used by the pupils for research and extended learning.
