Sociology is the systematic study of society, social institutions, social organization, and social behavior, focusing primarily on the influence of social relationships upon people’s attitudes and behaviors and on how societies are established and changed. Sociology has an extremely broad scope, encompassing, for example, the study of social theory, social change, social structures, gender, ethnicity and race. A major goal of sociology is to identify underlying, recurring patterns of and influences on social behavior—love, poverty, conformity, discrimination, illness, alienation, deviance, crime, overpopulation and community.
