Links to help you find resources in Sociology

Welcome to the King Library

“Sociology is the study of social life and behavior, especially in relation to social systems, how they work, how they change, the consequences they produce, and their complex relation to people’s lives” (Johnson, 1995: 269).This guide is designed to provide you with some foundation to the complexities of sociology as well as some sources to begin your research. I recommend that you refer to other SJSU LibGuides for specific topics such as on race, ethnicity, gender, or sexualities.
