Why should I study Sociology?

Studying Sociology

Sociology is the study of human social relationships and institutions. The areas of focus for sociology are diverse. They can range from crime to religion, from the family to the state, from the divisions of race and social class to the shared beliefs of a common culture, and from social stability to radical change in whole societies.

Many sociology graduates focus their studies in particular tracks, such as theories, research methods, crim and punishment, or social welfare. With a specialisation in sociology, most graduates pursue career paths that compliment those topics, such as social workers, couseling, correctionaly rehabilitation, or communuty development.
