Societies are constantly experiencing and adapting to technologic, atmospheric, economic, demographic and dogmatic changes, and sociologists, gender specialist and social workers are at the heart of this process of human evolution, making sense of the past and directing the future. Study of a society is the investigation of human behavior in the social context.

Sociology, social work and gender studies look into the composition, organization, culture, norms and development of societies.
