Learn about our society, how we shape it and how it shapes us



Illustration of crowdSociology examines how societies shape people's lives and how individuals shape the societies in which they live. Sociologists study social institutions, like the family, education, and criminal justice, as well as relations between groups on the basis of race, gender, sexuality, and social class.
