Careers in Sociology
Students who major in sociology are well prepared for jobs across a broad spectrum of agencies and organizations. In fact, coursework that examines a range of social factors and fosters expertise in research methodologies and statistical analyses provides sociologists with an advantage over non-behavioral science, liberal arts majors when applying for various forms of employment. While a portion of sociology graduates seek jobs in family-related social service fields, other seek jobs as:
- community organizers
- hospital administrators
- housing human resource managers
- personnel coordinators
