Sociology Scholarships

Human Relations, Special Populations and How Society Works

Sociology is the study of human social interactions. A sociology student investigates every aspect of social development and structure, and collective behavior as opposed to the behavior of individuals (which is the province of a similar science called psychology). Sociology contains any number of fascinating areas of specialization, including criminal justice, social inequality, and how education affects human development.
