careers in sociologyWhat do Michelle Obama, Robin Williams, Alonzo Morning, and Martin Luther King Jr. all have in common? They all studied sociology!

We get a lot of questions on StudentAdvisor about what you can do with certain college degrees. A lot of students want to study sociology because they’re drawn to the subject matter. After all, wouldn’t we all like to have a better grasp on how our complex society functions? But when it comes to figuring out what to do after college, many are at a loss figuring out what careers in sociology make sense for them.

Good news though! We’ve created a Careers in Sociology resource page to help you examine the many career paths you can pursue after studying sociology. From criminal justice to education, from government to academic research, even social advocacy – the possibilities are really endless!

So for you sociologists-to-be: don’t be discouraged! There is very much a need for every organization to have employees who possess a thorough understanding of society’s issues and how to address them….
