Careers in Sociology

Sociology is the study of society. Sociology is both topically and methodologically a very broad discipline. Its traditional focus has included social stratification, social class, social mobility, law, religion, secularisation and deviance. As all spheres of human activity are sculpted by social structure and individual agency, sociology has gradually expanded its focus to further subjects like health, medical, military and penal bodies, the Internet and even the role of social activity in the development of scientific knowledge. There is a growing demand for the experts of sociology for teaching and research.
