Sociology is the scientific study of human relationships, groups, and institutions. It is the study of social life at every level: from the rise and fall of nations and civilizations to two-person relationships such as those between two friends, romantic partners, or even two strangers on the street. Sociologists examine how cultural and social structures come to shape and are shaped by human action and consciousness.
Sociology is highly interdisciplinary, drawing insights and methods from history, anthropology, economics, political science, psychology, medicine, and applied mathematics, physics, and computer science.
Sociology is offered as both a concentration and a secondary field.
