Sociology

The study of society, its structures, systems and roles, is the primary focus of the academic discipline of sociology. Students enrolled in Sociology courses can choose from a number of specialized areas of research such as indigenous peoples, human rights, the cultures of societies around the world, development and more. Working professionals, full time students or anyone with an interest in Sociology can benefit from enrolling in a Sociology course, thereby gaining valuable qualifications and studying an interesting subject.

Sociology courses can last a few days to a year and are offered at universities around the world. Each different Sociology course will focus on a distinct area of the discipline. Most are aimed at target potential students and therefore may have important prerequisites to consider. Some Sociology courses include the assurance of a diploma or certificate for successful graduates.

Sociology is the study of people in society. It examines people as social beings on the individual, group and societal level. It can be defined as: ‘the scientific study of human social life, groups and societies.’ Sociology is thus a social science (like psychology or anthropology), rather than a physical one (such as physics, chemistry or biology). It is the task of the sociologist to unravel how ‘nurture’ or ‘social’ factors (rather than ‘nature’ (or genetic, biological or inherited factors, as in the study of biology) influence people at the level of the individual, group or wider society.

Sociologists consider how social and socially-influenced factors, such as family, education, ethnicity, social class and gender can play a part in shaping individual identities. Sociologists also consider group behaviour. For example, a sociologist may study how an office teamwork, or how people’s behaviour is affected by those of their colleagues or work associates. They may also question how factors such as gender or class influence our behaviours as individuals and in group contexts.... [-]
