I ask questions such as , What is Sociology? Why do you chose sociology ? And who will I be called after graduating from Sociology department, and what is the strategies that I will gain that I do not no now that I will no later? In fact many of them give me exactly the same thing such as ; Who will I be called after graduating from the department of Sociology ; Sociologist ,

The techniques that I will learn after graduating; Social telesis , Hmm this bust my brain with the great determination and dream to become a Sociologist.
