Earning A Degree In Sociology

Sociologists study human behavior as it pertains to human interaction within the guidelines of an organizational structure. The interaction between humans is more complex than the interactions between other animal species. Human behavior is greatly influenced and governed by social, religious, and legal guidelines. A sociologist studies these behaviors and the influences that preserve certain behaviors and change others.

Sociology is a broad science, covering many different disciplines the social sciences. Anthropology, archeology, and linguistics are the few disciplines that surpass what sociology readily encompasses. Sociology also studies more tangible measures of human behavior such as class or social status, social movements, criminal deviance, and even revolution.

Most careers in sociology require standard business working hours. Sociologists generally spend most of their time behind a desk, collecting and evaluating data to be used in preparation of written reports. Sociologists are usually called upon to attend meetings and give oral presentations as well. Depending on their specialty, a sociologist may be asked to travel as part of their research or to collaborate with other social scientist.
