Sociology is the scientific study of interactions within or between groups and societies, studying their social structure and activities. Sociologists explore how people interact to form communities, and attempt to extrapolate how communities will behave in the future, based on observations of their behavior in the past and present. They are also able to determine whether or not a community is thriving, stagnant, or in decline, and sometimes, they are able to guide unhealthy communities so that they thrive again.

Sociology shares deep ties with a wide array of other disciplines that also deal with the study of society. The fields of anthropology, economics, political science and psychology have influenced and have been influenced by sociology and these fields share a great amount of history and common research interests. Sociology and other social sciences are better contrasted according to methodology rather than by objects of study. Additionally, unlike sociology, psychology and anthropology have forensic components that deal with anatomy and other types of laboratory research.
