What is Sociology?

Sociology is broadly understood as science of society. It enables us to understand the structure and dynamics of society, and their connections to patterns of human behavior and individual life. It examines the ways in which the  various social institutions (such as kinship, economic, political, or religious) affect human attitudes, actions, and opportunities. The discipline also explores how both individuals and collectivities alter social organization in various ways. Sociology asks about the sources and consequences of change in social arrangements and institutions.  Areas studied in sociology include: family, kinship, religion, Political system, economic system, social ineqiualities, social change, social problems and the views of various thinkers.
