Sociology and anthropology both explore human experiences in their social and cultural contexts. They analyse the nature of society, social organisation and historical change. Although distinctive from each other in certain ways, sociology and anthropology are also highly interrelated disciplines, investigating similar key questions. These include:
How can we understand identity, social class and cultural difference?
What causes social and economic change, and how is this experienced in people’s daily lives?
What conditions create inequalities between people, and what can we do to address these inequalities?
