AS in Citizenship 1101

Oxford College is pleased to offer the AQA AS Level in Citizenship.

The course will address the relationship between the individual, the law and the state, and the nature of identities at AS. Should you progress to A2, you will study the principles and characteristics of justice systems, the nature of representative democracy, the role of parliament in the UK and contemporary global citizenship issues.

By studying Citizenship you will be able to develop, use and apply your knowledge developed to:

  • communicate and articulate different views, ideas and perspectives.
  • advocate, negotiate, plan, make decisions and take action on citizenship issues.
  • select, interpret, analyse and evaluate information to construct reasoned and coherent arguments,
  • make decisions, propose alternative solutions and form conclusions.
  • work with others, using problem solving and critical approaches to the issues, problems and
  • events.

Underpinning the course of study is the requirement for students to be actively engaged in a range of citizenship activities.

 

This AS course consists of two units:

  • Unit 1 – CIST1: Identity, Rights and Responsibilities
  • Unit 2 – CIST2: Democracy, Active Citizenship and Participation

The AS Units

Unit 1 – CIST1: Identity, Rights and Responsibilities

In the study of this first unit, this unit will help you to explore and respond to the following key questions;

  • What does it mean to be British?
  • Are we all equal citizens?
  • What are my rights and responsibilities?
  • How are my rights protected and supported?

These questions will be examined through the examination of a variety of case studies including historical events and legal documentation. These questions will be considered by examining issues such as immigration, perceptions of ‘Britishness’ and also discrimination.

Unit 2 – CIST2: Democracy, Active Citizenship and Participation

In the study of this second unit, this unit will help you to explore and respond to the following key questions;

  • Who holds power in the UK?
  • Who can make a difference?
  • How can I make a difference?

These issues will be considered alongside conducting your Citizenship in action project. By working together can citizens bring about change? This project will be used to achieve success in the examination.
