The art and science of interviews
Sociologists approach the study of human society in different ways. They can look at the “big picture” of society to see how it operates. This is a macro view focusing on the large social phenomena of society such as social institutions and inequality. Sociologists can also take a micro view, zeroing in on the immediate social situations in which people interact with one another. From these two views, sociologists have developed various theoretical perspectives, each a set of general assumptions about the nature of society. To help understand the beginners, these major theoretical strands could broadly be classified into two major approaches in sociology. These are the Structural approach (also called as macro sociology) and the Social Action approach (Also called as the interpretive, anti/non-positive or micro sociology).
