Honours In Sociology


Sociology is the study of social life and ranges from micro-scale everyday interactions to macro-scale global transformations, and how these are articulated and understood. The beauty of sociology is you can study anything: from youth homelessness to food; housework to the stock exchange; from philosophical and social theoretical questions to animal rights; social movements to gender identities.
