According to the American Sociological Association, sociology is the overarching “study of society.” It is a “social science involving the study of the social lives of people, groups, and societies.” Topics in the study of sociology include race, class, gender, inequality, health, politics, social movements, sexuality, and environment, and because of this wide range of concentrations, more specific majors in the field of sociology exist, such as gender and sexuality studies. Those with a background in sociology can be found in the fields of international business, international publishing, and social work.
