    Career & Postgraduate Opportunities


    The majority of graduates with social studies majors enter teaching or closely allied fields. Many of these earn advanced degrees in social studies or related educational areas such as school administration or special education. 

    In addition, the disciplinary concentration can provide a foundation for graduate study in that discipline. 

    The degree can also serve as a basis for professional study in law and public administration. 

    Those not entering the teaching field often find employment opportunities in social service or government agencies.
