There has never been a more important time to study Sociology. Understanding what makes societies work, how people can live amicably together and how we cope with rapid social change has never been more relevant.
Sociology studies human society through examining the large-scale forces that shape our personal experiences and the small-scale social interactions that give our life meaning.
It provides frameworks that can be used to facilitate our understanding of our everyday lives, in the context of our histories, cultural values and social relationships.
It is a social science bound by rules and ethics that aims to produce objective, clear and careful enquiry.
