In a rapidly changing world, Cambridge International AS and A Level Sociology offers learners the opportunity not only to explore the processes that are shaping current trends, but also to develop an understanding of the complexity and diversity of human societies and their continuities with the past.
The study of sociology stimulates awareness of contemporary social, cultural and political issues, and focuses on the importance of examining these issues in a rigorous, reasoned and analytical way.
The syllabus year refers to the year in which the examination will be taken.
We updated the Cambridge International AS & A Level Sociology syllabus in 2014. To better understand the assessment approach for the syllabus we recommend you look at the specimen papers for 2014 onwards. Schools registered with Cambridge can access question papers from the previous exam series, including June and November 2014, through Teacher Support.
