  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
    Duration

Overview

While a major in sociology is useful regardless of career choice, Lander’s program also prepares students for a variety of more specialized occupational opportunities in fields such as non-profit organizations, social work, corrections, law enforcement, survey research, policy analysis, vocational guidance, counseling, human services, personnel management in industry, and public health.

For the student with well-defined occupational goals, careful selection of cognates and electives provides the basis of a highly specialized and focused education, directed toward preparation for specific areas of occupation. For the student with loosely defined occupational goals, the major can serve as a broad-based educational experience in which many occupational opportunities can be explored.

Undergraduate majors in sociology will:

  • demonstrate the ability to describe and appropriately use key sociological concepts;
  • demonstrate the ability to design, implement, and analyze sociological research;
  • demonstrate the ability to apply sociological theory to the analysis and understanding of concrete social phenomena; and
  • demonstrate knowledge of career opportunities in the profession of sociology and related fields.
