Sociology

HeaderBar-HASN Options

Why should I choose Sociology?

VideoLink

  • Do you wonder what fuels our apparent fixation with celebrity?
  • Is it just gossip in a modern form?
  • Is it that it provides endless, easily obtained content for our multiplying TV channels, newspaper pages and magazines?
  • Could it be both?
  • Or even something much more profound about the class system of modern Britain?
  • You may be already thinking ‘But class doesn’t mean anything anymore’. Are you sure?
  • Why is the number of years you can expect to live still associated with your occupation?
  • What about the way that your gender, religion, and ethnic background open up or close down opportunities in your life?
  • What kinds of spiritual faith do people have in Britain today? And how far do the media affect how personal lifestyle choices are viewed by wider society?

Sociology is the study of how society is organised and how we experience life. If the questions above arouse curiosity then this may be a good subject for you.
