People belong to many different social groups. Sociology looks at how our participation influences the ways that we understand and confront the challenges of everyday life-- how we communicate, learn, grow up, love, work and age, in families and cities, among friends and strangers.

Sociology, together with the other social sciences, tries to look clearly and critically at the social problems we struggle to solve: inequality, sexism, racism, violence, environmental damage, etc. The sociological imagination strives to create an understanding more objective than the rationalizations and justifications to which we so frequently resort. If you want to work with people - if you want to teach or manage or facilitate - then you will be interested in  sociology and its many ways of examining the human condition.
