Our National Qualifications in Sociology focus on investigating the relationship between society and the individuals who live in it. These Courses develop thinking from a sociological perspective and encourage learners to ask questions about the social world in which we live. Sociological approaches are used to research human social behaviour and to enable learners to become familiar with research methods and the use of evidence in sociology.
