Course Introduction

Sociology looks at how we influence one another as individuals and groups, and the ways in which wider social factors affect what we do and how we think. Sociology challenges our prejudices and assumptions, explores questions about the nature of society, human relationships and behaviour, examining issues around power and inequalities, social change, conflict and development.
