Sociology is complemented by the Humanities because these subjects also develop an understanding of key sociological perspectives. So, for example, in English Literature, you may explore a Marxist or feminist interpretation of a text like ‘Great Expectations’. In Geography you will study demography – trends in the size and characteristics of populations – and in Sociology, you will study the social forces that produce these patterns. As a Social Science, it is naturally complemented by other Social Science subjects (Politics and Economics).
August Comte once said, Sociology is the ‘Queen of the Sciences’. While you will not be working in a laboratory testing hypotheses, you will be putting sociological arguments to the test in a systematic, objective and logical way. It is a subject then that is compatible with many other academic disciplines.
