Getting Started with the Sociology Research Guide

The HNU Library's Sociology Research Guide is intended to support student coursework offered through the School of Business and Applied Sciences at Holy Names University. Sociology studies social systems, institutions, structures, cultures, interaction, processes, and problems. It attempts to explain how puzzling social phenomena arise from understandable social action and interaction and how social forces shape individuals, groups, and nations. Sociology's aim is to provide an understanding of the significant social influences on various segments of society, such as persons, groups, and institutions.
