What Can You Do With a Degree in Sociology?

One of the best benefits to a sociology degree is that what you learn will be widely applicable to many professional fields. Human resources, market research, public health, labor relations, counseling and victim services—these are just a few of the areas where our graduates excel.

Activities and Opportunities

As one of our students, you’ll learn and grow beyond your classroom work. You’ll get to better know our field and those of us in it through professional organizations. You can challenge yourself by joining our honor society. And you’ll get to see the world through study abroad programs.
