Career & Postgraduate Opportunities As with most undergraduate degrees, a major in sociology does not provide automatic access to any specific career. Most sociologists do some combination of three basic activities: teaching, research, and managing people or programs. What students can do with a B.A. in sociology depends upon a combination of factors including the ever-changing job market and the student's specific qualifications - courses, skills, work experience, and professional contacts. A major in sociology provides good preparation for students going into many areas, including law, social work, and social policy planning.
