Sociology will introduce you to influential concepts, theories, perspectives, and approaches in sociology and will teach you how to apply that knowledge to contemporary issues.
Sociologists study the way humans create social structures and build social institutions, communities, nations, and states. They accomplish this by conducting analyses of the full range of behaviors and interactions that shape the human experience.
