Undergraduate

An undergraduate degree in sociology provides students with the technical and analytic tools, critical thinking skills, and global perspective needed to navigate the 21st century successfully and succeed in many careers. The jobs current students apply for after graduation may not even exist yet. To keep up with a rapidly changing world, sociology majors acquire the tools to critically analyze the world and their place within it in a wide range of fascinating courses.

Graduates apply their knowledge and skills across a wide variety of occupations and professions including medical and health services, recreation, business, law and law enforcement, urban planning, social policy, and social services. They are also prepared for graduate and professional school programs in areas such as sociology, medicine, health professions, law, public policy, business, social work, and other social sciences.
