Sociology involves the gathering of information about society. The information is used to make generalizations and predictions about causes and consequences.
Sociology is appealing to those who want to work with people in various helping professions, to take part in the planning of communities and their facilities, to work toward solving social problems, and to gather information and test hypotheses about social life.
