Career Information


What can I do with a degree in sociology? This question can be answered in a multitude of ways, as you will discover in this new edition of the American Sociological Association's Careers in Sociology. The booklet includes a fresh definition of sociology as a discipline and profession, and profiles of students who talk about how sociology led to their current employment. It also outlines possible career paths and offers tips for how to apply to graduate school.

We hope that both high school and undergraduate students will use Careers in Sociology as an introduction to the field. High school guidance counselors and teachers, college and university career counseling personnel, and faculty members should also find the booklet of assistance in guiding students during the important process of selecting a major and discovering how it might relate to a career path.

Sociology continues to grow and diversify during the late 20th century. It is an excellent liberal arts major that will help prepare students for the challenges of the century ahead.
