Sociology matters because it raises your awareness of cultural patterns you would otherwise take for granted.
- What culture and/or subcultures do you belong to? Have you ever questioned your cultureâ€™s norms and values?
- How does your culture relate to cultures in other societies? Do you feel comfortable in mainstream society?
Sociology matters, too, because it shows you how you became who you are.
- How do you view yourself as you interact with others around you? How do you think you formed this view of yourself?
- What people, groups, or social institutions have been particularly important in helping you to define who you are?
