Sociology provides valuable insights into the human experience and assists in the understanding of human behavior. Sociologists examine human societies, cultures, groups, interactions, problems and the changing nature of these phenomena.  Sociology is an empirical discipline that explores assumptions and tests hypotheses about the human condition.
