While psychology is the science of human thought, sociology is the science of human relationships. Sociologists consider all social interactions and the structures that make up society itself, ranging from crime to religion to class - and even the way in which social activity impacts upon the development of scientific knowledge.
Sociology considers these issues on not only the societal level, but also from personal and global perspectives. What are the societal implications of gender identity, and how do they form? What are the causes behind migration? The resulting impacts upon both communities?
