Students who study sociology at Lehman take courses in a variety of areas, including theory, education, gender, work and society, social stratification, race and ethnicity, the family, criminology, health and illness, and research methods. Through this coursework, students acquire the knowledge and critical skills needed to understand a wide range of social problems such as crime, poverty, divorce, racism, sexism, child abuse, unemployment, and addiction.
A bachelor’s in sociology provides a strong preparation for entry-level positions in private industry, business, government and non-profit organizations. In the past, most sociology majors found employment in fields such as education, business, gerontology, journalism, politics, religion, social welfare, and other areas that involve working with the public or helping those in need. Recently, however, sociology students with strong backgrounds in research methods (research design, computer applications, and applied statistical techniques) have been more likely to enter professions that involve the formulation or evaluation of public policies and programs.
