Careers and Advanced Degrees

Sociologists are interested in people's behaviors whether it is individual; relational like family or in the workplace; or studying social processes such as immigration patterns. You'll be prepared for any career in which knowledge about social behavior or knowledge about conducting research on social behavior is important. Leverage a solid background in understanding human behavior into post-graduate work or a successful career in areas such as human resources, teaching, or sales. 

Our Department of Sociology graduates are attorneys, counselors, a forensic interviewer, research directors, and teachers at companies, institutions, and organizations like Boston University, Lutheran Social Services, Roche Diagnostics Corporation (US), and the United States Department of Justice.

Sociology majors have pursued advanced degrees at DePaul University, Indiana University, and the University of California (Irvine).
