About

Sociology is the study of human society. It is the study of human behaviour and how we are shaped by the world and environment in which we live. Sociologists investigate the social factors of class, gender, ethnicity, wealth, power, status, culture and traditions.

 

Sociology is an academic subject that requires strong written and verbal skills. The Subject requires learners to have the ability to think differently and question the obvious.
