The Sociology program at Washington State University looks at society from every angle—it is the scientific study of social life. 

Visit the official programme website for more information


Sociology is part of the social sciences that aims at answering questions of why and how we group together to form societies as well as the individual’s role within society. The fundamental insight of the discipline is that the social world matters; our lives are affected not only by our personal psychology, but by our place in the social world.
