What Students Say:
“Sociology fits well with my other subjects, especially Government and Politics, as it offers sociological theories and explanations that go alongside political ideas. It teaches you about issues that you can then apply to everyday life outside of College. The tutors encourage you to go the extra mile to boost your studies and the students all have positive attitudes to work which creates a work-friendly atmosphere.” – Danny Minien.
“The topics we have studied in Sociology have been very interesting and useful as they have allowed me to gain an insight into how society works and how people act in society. Personally I believe Sociology is important as it helps you understand the relationships between individuals living in a community. Discussing and debating the issues and finding out what other people think is also interesting as it allows me to voice my opinions and listen to others’. Overall the subject is engaging as you can use your own knowledge about society and discuss it using the theories of sociologists.” – Faryaal Ali.
