Sociology examines how individuals, groups and institutions affect each other in a variety of social settings, from the most intimate setting to global international settings. Societal inequities due to age, social class, disability, ethnicity, gender, race and sexual orientation are central issues in the discipline. Sociology provides the student with the tools to evaluate theories and research about group behaviors and activities as well as how people behave in groups. The discipline also applies research findings to the development and assessment of social programs and policies.
