Social policy is quite a broad term. It generally applies to governmental policy that affects our day-to-day lives. How LGBTQ people are viewed in the law is an example.

Sociology explores the structures, development, and functioning of society and also looks at social problems. You will study theories such as Marxism, Right Realism, Functionalism etc. You can look at how sociology has an effect on social policy and vice verse. Social policy is often covered in a course of study of sociology.

Sociology and social policy are very different things.
