    Asslamo Allaikum,

    Sociology is an academic and applied discipline that studies society and human social interaction.

    Psychology is an academic and applied discipline involving the scientific study of mental processes and behavior.

    Both science require for you to be a "People Person" but sociology deals with people, society,
    & psychology deals with getting into "People's heads/mind"

    Please see the following links for brances of sociology.
