Sociology @ The University of Lethbridge
Sociology provides the conceptual and methodological framework to understand society. Its primary goal is to stimulate thinking about society, applying imagination and critical analysis to the many facets of social life. Using the conceptual and methodological tools that sociology provides, we gain insight into how people relate to one another and become aware of the values and beliefs that shape the structures and processes of society. This encourages more than the development of analytical insight; the application of sociology can lead to a better understanding of social problems and issues and suggest how they might be addressed.
