Overview

Sociology is the study of society, of people and their behaviour. Essentially it is the academic study of us. Everything we do has sociological implications and studying Sociology feeds into and informs a number of additional disciplines including law, health, crime, media and politics. The issues we explore in the Sociology classroom are directly related to our everyday lives. Such as, what is the role of the family and how important is early socialisation in shaping our future?
