If you like to watch people and try to figure out why they do what
they do, you will like sociology.  Sociology pries open the doors of
society so you can see what goes on behind them.  From how people
become homeless to how people become president, from why women are
treated as second class citizens around the world to why people
commit suicide—are all parts of sociology.  When we’re born we don’t
have ideas about social class or age or gender, yet we learn such
things as a part of growing up in this society.  Uncovering
the “hows” and “whys” of this process is one of sociology’s most
fascinating contributions to your life.
