Why do people behave the way they do in elevators, classrooms, and around town? What makes men and women different, and how much of that difference is learned rather than innate? How does the time period in which we are living influence our choices, actions and beliefs?
Sociology is the analytical study of human groups and societies — how they develop, how they are structured, and how they function. Like human society itself, the field of sociology is extremely broad. Sociologists study the social world, from small groups of friends and families, to formal organizations, to entire nations. We look at social relationships and interactions, power and conflict, structures that hold societies together, and how societies change.
