Hi there, I have had this debate with many people in my year about wether sociology should be 1) considered a science and 2) wether it is a difficult subject when compared to science and humanities. I am on the sceptical side of sociology being a worth while subject at GCSE or A-level. I was wondering if I could get some other peoples opinions on it. Thank you!

I also take the subject as an A Level and yes it is particularly difficult but it solely depends on you as an individual. It is a respected essay subject, and is quite similar in nature to subjects like Psychology, History and Politics in regards to essay structure. It’s a very very interesting subject and I would highly recommend it to anyone. And yes it is as difficult as a “Science and Humanities” since it is considered a humanities itself

ok, that sounds pretty fair. Its good to hear the opinion from an a-level student doing it. Im currently in year 11 and theres people in my classes that keep telling me how its very difficult and what not, so I just wanted to get some other peoples opion on the matter. Im not syaing that its easy, just not as hard as thier making out. Thank you!!!!

1. whether it is a science is a huge debate which comes up as a large chunk in the a level, personally i’m on the fence but it’s very interesting.

2. yes, definitely a worthwhile subject. teaches you things that other subjects can’t

Sociology is absolutely not a science and any anybody who tells you otherwise is straight-up lying.

A level! and no problem, I think people look over it but it is really such a valuable subject not just for the qualification but for life imo, Im so much more informed of things than I would have been if I didn’t study it.
