Hi Kayleen! I’m sorry no one’s answered your question yet. We're working hard to get it answered by Professionals with the best insights, but in the meantime I've included a link to a relevant Q&A here on CareerVillage.org that should be super helpful for you to read through.


Joana asked: What jobs are there for sociology majors?, and one of the Pros who answered it said:


I would also add from personal experience (as a Sociology major myself) that it is a really good background to have in general. You can always teach and do research with Sociology. I didn't particularly want to do that when I was an undergrad, so I ended up going to law school. Sociology served to be an excellent background for law school, and for future study since it teaches you to recognize patterns in behavior and things like that...

Lorena’s Answer

Hi Kayleen, some possible jobs could be: Researcher, Professor, Guidance Counselor, Human Resources (HR), Lawyer, Management Consultant, Market Research Analyst, Public Relations (PR) Specialist. One of the things that Sociology teaches you is, one's environment does affect your behavior and actions. Also, it gives you cultural awareness. One of the most common questions you might have is, "Why do people do certain things?

Lorena recommends the following next steps:

A great way to get started is by joining Sociology or Human Behavior organizations in your college or university.
You can also reach out to someone who currently has your future desired job and do an informational interview.
If you are thinking research, it is a competitive field and a Master's is required.
