About the subject

Sociology is about the relationship between people and society. Sociologists look at the behaviour of ordinary people in their daily lives to understand the things that they do. It also looks at how we are shaped by society and how we become the people we are. Sociology teaches us the workings of society and helps us to explain human behaviour.

A qualification in sociology is very useful for people related careers such as police work, social work, teaching and journalism.
