Hi,

I’m year 13 and do a level sociology.

In a nutshell, it’s about looking at societies institutions (education, law, the media, family etc) and various theories which offer explanations for what it means for individuals when interacting with these structural elements of society. E.g does the media spread the dominant ideology, or are we free to interpret things on our own?

In sociology I study Education, crime and deviance, culture and identity and the media with AQA. Education and crime and deviance is mandatory however culture and identity and the media is an option which the teacher usually picks. So you could end up doing beliefs in society or something instead.

So basically we just learn about these different topics in relation to their influence on society and individuals, and learn theories alongside this so we become critical thinkers and can evaluate the role of institutions.

Sorry this is probably confusing to read!
