A sociology major focuses on the study of human society and social relationships, particularly in areas concerning ethnicity and gender, employment and leisure, recreation and tourism, population health, lifestyle and well-being. Students learn to use quantitative and qualitative methods to research social data and often work in government departments. These graduates design and implement surveys, conduct interviews, analyse data, compile and evaluate information, and present the results in a report format.
