Sociology and Politics*

Taking a combination of Sociology and Politics gives students an insight into how social and political forces
affect our everyday lives and what we can do to effect change. Sociology focuses on understanding and
analysing how human societies work. It studies everyday social practices, as well as discussing questions
around economic inequality, power, gender and race, for example. Politics looks more at the decisionmaking process that groups or organisations make. These do not necessarily have to be governmental, as
politics can be found in most interactions from schools to businesses and religious institutions.
