Understanding People.
Changing the World.

The field of sociology is as broad and diverse as the communities being studied.

Sociology examines the organization, structure, and change of social groups and institutions. It combines rigorous methods of analysis to better understand how social systems and group dynamics shape (and are shaped by) individuals and groups. Sociologists think critically about various aspects of society from politics to the family to better understand sources of inequality and to identify remedies for this inequality. Sociology students are often interested in acquiring critical tools to document social trends and discover ways to change social structures.
