About

Sociology is the study of human social life and the interdependent social institutions (culture, the economy, religion, education) that influence people. It’s guided by the understanding that our lives are affected by our “social location” (class position, race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation) as well as individual experiences in the world.

The study of sociology is vast, from the research of family unit relationships to the disconnect that gender, class, race and ethnicity may cause to the exploration of remote cultures. Specialties within sociology include criminal justice, cultural sociology, family studies, race/ethnic relations, education and popular culture.
