Welcome to the department blog and please be sure to return here often and make use of the resources here all the time that you are a student of Sociology.
We study the WJEC exam board curriculum for Sociology here in Wales (which has a lot in common with the Eduqas curriculum delivered in England).
Both AS and A2 Sociology are following brand new curricula and the new AS specification was taught and examined for the first time in 2015-16, and the new A2 specification is being taught and examined for the first time in 2016-17.
This blog is going to help answer your questions about these new specifications and exams, and the work that you are going to have to do in order to be a successful student.
You can check out the department social media:
Also you should make your own blogs and social media to help you explore the issues and approaches we'll be covering in this subject. Link back to this blog and we'll link out to yours, and then all of us can benefit from our shared investigations and findings.
Remember that a lot of the issues and material that we will be covering is considered to be contentious and controversial by a lot of people in society, including ourselves. So approach with an open mind and remember not to take anything personally - be willing to learn.
