One great thing about getting a sociology degree is its flexibility. There are numerous and diversified career opportunities for sociology graduates -- and since it is literally the study of social structure and social change, an understanding of sociology makes you well-prepared for the rapidly changing career landscape of today. Some examples of career fields that sociology graduates enter are: social work, public administration, politics, law, business, research analyst/data scientist, communication, human resources, nonprofit management, and counseling. For more information and ideas, take a look at this this "fun" piece from Cosmopolitan (2014) magazine, the ASA's resource page on Careers in Sociology, or feel free to contact any sociology faculty member.
