what we do

What is Sociology?

In simple words Sociology is the study of society. It is the study of human social relationships and institutions. It is comparatively new a social science involving the study of the social lives of people, groups, and societies.

“What makes it unique among academic disciplines is its focus from a many of angles, on the linkages between our individual experience and the context of the wider society in which we live. Investigating the social ties between individual and society, between our private domain and the public life, and between freedom and constraint – these are the heart of Sociology. Adopting this way of seeing – C. Wright Mills called it “the sociological imagination” – helps us understand how powerfully the world in which we live shapes what we do and how we do it.”
