For Parents

This website is primarily aimed at pre-university level teachers of Sociology; however, if you are a parent or guardian of someone who is studying Sociology, or if you are simply interested in finding out more about the subject, then there is plenty of information on this website that will be of value to you.

If you are new to the subject, you might want to start with our brief introduction to What is Sociology? Or you might be interested to find out what kinds of jobs and careers your son or daughter could go into after studying Sociology? Alternatively if they are already studying Sociology, this website can provide ideas for their projects or essays, or examples and material to use in coursework. Take a look under Sociology in Action, this will give you some examples of contemporary sociological research. Under Teaching Resources or in the Magazine you will find content primarily aimed at teachers, but here you will also discover up to date material students could use in an assignment or classroom presentations.

Finally, if you have any ideas, comments, corrections or suggestions for content, please do contact us, as we would love to hear from you!
