Sociologists study the formation and interaction of human groups and the individual's relationship to social groups. There is a focus on the role of various groups in socialization of the individual into norms, values and behaviors. There is also a focus on the development of  major social institutions and how they interact with each other and impact socialization across time and cultures. Sociologists use a theoretical framework that examines how institutions and groups function for the success of a society, the conflicts that may be inherent in group interaction and how human beings can change institutions and their relationship.
