A degree in sociology can help you prepare for specific careers by, for example, studying specific aspects of society or by sharpening a specific set of analytical or communication skills.
Sociology also provides students with the tools they will need to be effective in the private sector or public life more generally, such as strong analytical, verbal and written communication skills, and literacy with research and statistics. Flexibility and breadth of scope are a few of the major’s strengths, as these provide students with the opportunity to learn valuable skills while exploring topics and themes that matter to you.
Many of our graduates are admitted into the top tier of graduate programs in the social sciences, and into related fields such as social work, counseling, public policy, law, and education. In general, sociology is an excellent option for anyone interested in working with and understanding people.
