Normally, philosophy of science deals with the natural and physical sciences, but philosophy of science also deals with social sciences. There is philosophy of economics, psychology, and sociology. However, not every philosophical question involving sociology would be a question within the realm of philosophy of science. A question regarding whether a specific methodology would be scientific for a sociologist would be a question for philosophy of science. However, a question regarding whether a sociological doctrine is moral, or leads to immoral outcomes, something along those lines, would seem to me to be more of a philosophical question regarding morality or politics. The bottom line is I think the category will depend a lot on the specific question being raised.
