Sociology is the study of our social world — of our social lives as individuals, of how people connect as members of various groups, of how societies are organized, and of how they change over time. As a sociology student, you’ll consider the various options facing societies in an increasingly complex, specialized world. You’ll also find yourself thinking about how you can influence and participate in societal change in a meaningful way.
