Psychology if you’re talking about an individual, sociology if you’re talking about what a society finds attractive. Anthropology and gender studies may also touch on the topic.

    I`m taking a college sociology class right now and we are talking about this subject in some way. I think it is studied more in sociology. Sociology is more broad than psychology.
