About Us

Sociology is the study of society and social relations.

Sociology explores ways of thinking about personal and public issues in modern social life and how to link them together through the study of society and social relations. Thinking sociologically allows the individual to step outside the taken for granted processes of everyday living towards examining the processes which create, maintain and change social groups in society.
