Whether you already have a career goal in mind or are still undecided, the Sociology major is a great choice as it prepares students for a wide array of career options!

Visit our undergrad home page to watch a video featuring Sociology faculty and students titled “What Can I Do with a Sociology Major”. Look further down on this page to see a diagram highlighting many of the career options for Sociology majors.

Here are some great resources to help as you explore and prepare for your career:

We encourage you to talk with faculty members in the department, including your assigned faculty advisor and professors you are taking classes with, to discuss your career options (email them for an appointment or go to their office hours). Kathryn Upson is also available for career advice (schedule an appointment with her through Nexus) and the Center for Career Development can help in countless ways (they offer same day career coaching – scroll to the bottom of their website)!
