What is Sociology?
A common definition is that sociology is a systematic study of human interaction. The focus is on the social group, whether it be a two-person group or the whole world community. In understanding human situations, sociologists go beyond mere "people watching" and idle speculation; they use specialized types of procedures or analyses to make their research more valid and reliable.
