A discipline focused on problem-solving, data analysis, and pressing social issues, sociology prepares students for careers in a wide range of fields.
In recent years our majors have pursued legal careers; became social workers and community activists; worked for national consulting companies; taught underprivileged children; worked in the financial community as analysts and bankers, pursued doctorates in sociology, higher degrees in business, counseling, criminal justice, health care administration and medicine; and directed non-profit organizations.
This is just a snapshot of the varied career paths that our majors have taken. You can read more about our alumni here and see a full list of the career paths taken by WFU sociology majors.
