What is Sociology?

This video discusses the definition of sociology as defined by the American Sociological Association and gives examples of different social institutions. The example used in this video describes two seemingly similar students with very different outcomes in their post-secondary educational experiences and uses the concept of the sociological imagination to understand the impact of social structures on the individual.

Watch this video as a foundation to your understanding of the discipline. Further information on the foundation of sociology can be found in Chapter 1 in Sociology 2e by OpenStax College.
