Career Implications
The B.A. curriculum in Sociology is designed to prepare students for a variety of career paths, including:
  • Future graduate work in Sociology in order to become a professor, researcher, or applied Sociologist.
  • Entry-level positions throughout the business, human services, and government sectors. Employers look for people with the skills that an undergraduate education in Sociology provides.
  • Careers in journalism, politics, public relations, business, or public administration--fields that involve the kind of investigative skills and ability to work with diverse groups that Sociologists learn.
  • Professions such as law, education, medicine, social work, and counseling--fields that all draw on the rich fund of knowledge from Sociology.
