Sociology is the study of society, including social relationships, economies, and cultures.
Sociology encourages you to think about the connection between personal circumstances and public issues. It looks at the way social systems and institutions shape people’s lives and the way people organize to change society.
Studying sociology can help you gain a better understanding of how the world works. You will develop critical thinking and research skills, especially around power and privilege.
