The paper addresses the issues which relate sociology as science and sociology as a profession. As can be seen through scientific papers on this subject, many authors question sociology and its applicability outside the academy as well as somewhat disadvantageous position in relation to some other social and natural sciences. Through the review of sociological theoretical works, this paper gives an overview of the most common controversial issues from which some are: equalizing sociology with common sense, interdisciplinarity that is sometimes seen as a lack of advantage, the question of applicability of sociology outside the academy, the unfavorable image of sociology, etc. Apart from controversial issues, the paper discusses possible mechanisms for improving sociology as a science and as a profession, and in the empirical part of the paper are brought the experiences of the employed sociologists and students of sociology on the Faculty of Philosophy in Zagreb.
