Sociology can be broadly defined as the systematic study of human society. From local food trends to global migration patterns, sociologists use a variety of theoretical and analytical tools to investigate a wide array of topics. What connects this research is a shared interest in understanding how human action and consciousness both shape and are shaped by surrounding cultural and social forces. Sociology explores how families, socio-economic class, sexual orientation, gender, race and ethnicity, the law, and the state shape us as individuals and, in turn, how we as individuals shape these social institutions and structures.
