Sociology is the study of human social life as it is manifested within groups, institutions and whole societies. It is as Sociology’s subject matter extends from the personal (why do we read self-help books?) to the political (why are social movements attracting more recruits than political parties?); from the local (what role does the GAA play in sustaining communities?) to the global (what are the forces that drive globalization?); from the material (what are the factors that contribute to child poverty?) to the virtual (what is the impact of Facebook on the shaping of social networks and individual identity?) The questions posed by sociologists are endless, the means toward addressing those questions are diverse and the quest to find answers is a highly rewarding enterprise.
