The Sociology Major

Sociology is a valuable liberal arts major that prepares students for employment in careers that emphasize critical thinking skills and a general understanding of human social behavior.

Students with sociology degrees are employed in a wide range of industries, such as human service administration, health care administration, politics, non-profit organization administration, business, education, social research, criminal justice, social work, and public administration.

Sociology provides a useful background for students interested in pursuing graduate study in law, social work, business, education, medicine, and community planning.
