Sociology explores topical social issues and seeks to understand the modern world.

In Sociology we are interested in how the individual relates to society and how societies change across time. You can examine and analyse different aspects of modern society, eg, popular culture and the media, sexuality, ethnic identities, crime, religion, social justice and the family.
