The purpose of the Sociology curriculum at The Howard School is:

  • to encourage our students to become curious about the world in which they live, the groups they belong to and the influences which impact upon their lives.
  • to enable our students to become analytical and question social phenomenon they are familiar with; to consider the impartiality of the media, the role of education and the social construction of criminality.
  • to allow our students opportunities to explore the causes of social problems and increase their political literacy.
  • to allow our students to make positive contributions to society; they will be equipped with the skills needed to find solutions to social issues and see the world with empathy.
