It’s often said that the function of sociology is to reveal that which is hidden; why do people behave the way they do? What governs our everyday interactions, and what drives social change? If you’re fascinated by questions like these, then look no further. As a cornerstone social science, sociology overlaps several unique disciplines that study society, such as economics, psychology, and political science. It provides a range of essential, transferable skills including analysis, problem solving, critical thinking, and research, all of which are invaluable in just about any career, as well as higher education.
