This major is intended for students who are interested in graduate work in sociology or who want a strong sociology background in preparation for social or government work. Sociologists are employed in such diverse fields as telecommunications, human resource management, public assistance, research, and college teaching. Indeed, a degree in sociology should be seen as providing an opportunity to work in any environment where an understanding of social structure and social dynamics is required.
