Sociology is the scientific study of society. Applied Sociology is a branch of general sociology. Sociological methods are applied to many areas in the study of society to look at society from every angle and make observations about how we interact within society, how cultures affect each other and the individual, global issues, and many other areas.

"Applied sociology" and "sociological practice" have come to refer to intervention using sociological knowledge in an applied setting. Applied sociologists work in a wide variety of settings including universities, government, and private practice, using sociological methods to help communities solve everyday problems, such as improving community policing and crime prevention, evaluating and improving drug courts, assessing the needs of inner city neighborhoods, developing the capacity of an educational system, or promoting the development of housing and related resources for aging populations.[1]
