Course OverviewA distance learning course is the ideal way to gain a GCSE in Sociology. Whether you're looking to go on to further education, improve your job prospects or expand your knowledge, distance learning GCSE Sociology is a flexible and convenient course, which allows you to comprehensively prepare for an exam or career through home study. What's more, because the distance learning GCSE Sociology course is a fully comprehensive course, no prior knowledge is required.What is Sociology?Sociology is the study of people in society. It examines people as social beings on the individual, group and societal level. It can be defined as: ‘the scientific study of human social life, groups and societies.’Sociology is thus a social science (like psychology or anthropology), rather than a physical one (such as physics, chemistry or biology). It is the task of the sociologist to unravel how ‘nurture’ or ‘social’ factors (rather than ‘nature’ (or genetic, biological or inherited factors, as in the study of biology) influence people at the level of the individual, group or wider society.Sociologists consider how social and socially-influenced factors, such as family, education, ethnicity, social class and gender can play a part in shaping individual identities.Sociologists also consider group behaviour. For example, a sociologist may study how an office team work, or how people’s behaviour is affected by those of their colleagues or work associates. They may also question how factors such as gender or class influence our behaviours as individuals and in group contexts.Sociologists also study society-at-large, and may consider the correlations between factors such as ethnicity or class, for example, and participation in wider structures such as government or education.
