Is Sociology for me?

Sociology seeks to understand all aspects of human behavior. As such, anything and everything involving human behavior falls under its purview, including behavior of individuals, small and large groups, communities, institutions and organizations, as well as entire societies. Sociology is for anyone curious about society and its constituents. Motivated by a desire to better understand the principles of social life, Sociologists investigate, analyze, and synthesize the social world using state-of-the-art technologies. Their goal is to make life better for everyone and nurture a cohort of socially conscious citizenry in the process.
