What can you do with a degree in Sociology? Plenty! 

A degree in sociology can serve as a springboard to careers in public administration, human services, social work, urban planning, teaching, law, research and communications. Many graduates have continued their education in graduate and professional schools. A sociology degree provides excellent preparation for entering law school or obtaining a Master's degree in social work. The broad background provided by a sociology degree is just what many law schools look for in prospective students.
