Sociology studies the interaction of people
living in the society. How they affect the society and how the society affects
them. It studies the people as a whole and not by individuality. Sociologists
are the people who studies sociology. They analyze and understand the way
people behave in the community and also they find solution to the existing
phenomenon or social problem in the society. Sociologists are important in the
society it is because they make the lives of the people in the community
easier. They solve problems in the community that we find difficult, so it is
appropriate that we must have a reliable sociologist that we can rely on. They
must have all the skills that a good sociologist has. A good sociologist must
be good at reading comprehension, writing, critical thinking, analytical
skills, complex problem solving and communication.

From these past few years I observed that
most of the students enrolled from sociology department hates or does not do
well in Math and English. So maybe in their high school years they are not also
doing well in these subjects. As a social scientist in the future they must
possessed all the skills of a good sociology for them to be able to do their
job productively. English is a subject that can help you develop you reading
comprehension, writing and communication.  Social science also develops your communication
skills. Math develops your complex problem skills and science develops your
critical thinking and analytical skills. If you are not doing well in these
subjects then you probably failed to develop these skills and will give you
difficulties in passing the major subjects.

A graduated student from the sociology
department who doesn’t have yet fully harnessed the skills of a good sociology
is a social problem. Instead in helping and finding solution to existing
problems in the society they give problems instead. It is because what the
society need is a reliable and productive social scientist that can understand
and analyze things and not an ignorant-want- to-be-social-scientist. What I
want to study is that if there is an effect of high school grades of 4th year
AB-Sociology students in Math, English, Science, and Social Science in their
academic performance in their major subjects. And also I want to know why students
who are not good at math and English are enrolled in AB-Sociology when in fact
the students that are need in the sociology department are good at solving and

educational institutions, success is measured by academic performance, or how
well a student meets standards set out by local government and the institution
itself. Although education is not the only road to success in the working
world, much effort is made to identify, evaluate, track and encourage the
progress of students in schools. Parents care about their child’s academic
performance because they believe good academic results will provide more career
choices and job security. Schools, though invested in fostering good academic
habits for the same reason, are also often influenced by concerns about the
school’s reputation and the possibility of monetary aid from government institutions,
which can hinge on the overall academic performance of the school. State and
federal departments of education are charged with improving schools, and so
devise methods of measuring success in order to create plans for improvement. (Melissa.

From our childhood until our adulthood we are
studying different subject matters. And as our level raises the difficulty of
these subject matters also rises from easy to hard, from simple to complex. We
need to pass those subjects for us to be able to proceeds a higher level. In
college we have what we called majors and minor subjects. A major is a field
where students focus during the course of his/her degree. It is the student’s
main field of specialization during his or her associates or undergraduate studies
which would be in addition to, and may incorporate portions of, a core
curriculum. The core curriculum covers a range of subjects giving the student
or learner a good basis of knowledge and exposure.

In college, students are expected to do well
in their major subjects or be able to master them. Have skills that are essential
in their field and be productive and reliable in their work field. College is
the training ground of their future work. It gives them knowledge of what will
they be and what will they do in the future.

The student’s grade in their major subject
should be high because it can impact to their future career. Companies like
workers who are outstanding in their specialization field, so before they hire
someone they first see if your grades in college are high as it means you excel
and that you master or understand your subject matter well.  It is best that the students will be able to
master their subject of specialization because it will give them confidence in
their future work place. And also being able to master their subject of
specialization will result to a responsible, reliable and product worker that
will help the society to flourish more.

  and will  The result of the

While a minor is a secondary concentration of
courses that often complements the Major. These are the subjects that are related
or have significance in their major or subject of specialization.


A person can get these skills through years
of studying. From child to adulthood we are studying, we study different
subject matters. Most of these subjects are English, Math, Science and Social
Science. These are the subjects that we are repeatedly studying from
kindergarten until high school. But even though we frequently study them we can
still not master it thoroughly

Years of studying will develop these skills


            In sociology,


 Most of these subject matters are
Math, Science, English and Social Science. And even though we study those subject
matters in a continuous way some of us can’t still master them thoroughly.
