i majored in sociology.criminal justice.womens studies in college. i LOVED my classes, but looking back on it, i honestly wish i’d majored in something like nursing or accounting. starting salaries in this field are often like…22k a year. unless you have a masters, then you might make a bit more. i didn’t want to take out extensive student loans to get mymasters. i actually work as a manager in the financial field now- TOTALLY unrelated to my degree but much better salary. good luck!!

I did. I work as a community developer for the health authority. I plan evaluations, focus groups, campaigns and perform other random tasks.

I majored in Sociology and Feminist Studies, and now I’m getting my masters in education to become a high school or middle school history teacher.  I love teaching, and I can’t wait to have my credential and masters!

I did too and I loved the classes. I wanted to go into social work, but most places want you to have a masters and be licensed. I got my masters in clinical psychology and am now pursuing my bcba. I wish I would of majored in something else that is more specific.

I double-majored in psychology and sociology. However, I went the psychology route and I’m getting my Master’s and PsyD in clinical psychology.

I do have a good friend from undergrad who majored in sociology, then went on to get his Master’s and is currently working on his doctorate. He plans to teach undergraduate classes once he has his PhD.

I double majored in Sociology and Women’s and Gender Studies. I’m now getting a master’s degree in clinical social work with a medical/health focus. My interests are maternal and infant health, reproductive rights, and family violence.

I am majoring in Sociology possibly adding International Relations to the mix. I want to go to business school after I get my bachelors (hopefully in Germany or Austria). Trying to go towards market research/marketing on an international level. I’m still trying to figure out which Uni I can transfer from JC to. So far my prospects are Cal Berkeley and UC Davis (if I stay in CA, otherwise moving out of the country sooner)

I’m doing a soc minor — I created my own major for event planning/PR, so I just built my soc courses right into that and got enough for the minor. Could’ve done a major but refused to take stats haha

Hi there! I just graduated with a BS in Sociology a few weeks ago. I’m taking this bit of holidays, wedding, and moving time off from job hunting since I’ll be in a different state, but I know there are a lot of different options. Many state government jobs are great for Sociology majors as well as human relations positions for business and even a lot of jobs at universities. Good luck back at school!

Hi! I was a double major in Politics and Sociology and then a Masters of Public Policy. I am working sort of in the field for the federal government administering a contract that conducts research on poverty, immigrants, and rural areas. My classmates are doing: wedding planning (went to culinary school after college, then interned for a veteran wedding planner), public health researcher (got a Masters of Public Health), an athletic director (no additional degree), and in charge of a program that transitions people from institutions to independent living. If I can give you any advice, it would be to double major. Sociology is very helpful, but the only people who work directly in the field have PhDs (and I work with 2 PhDs in sociology from prestigious programs and even they aren’t considered to be working in the field.) So my best advice would be you’ll probably get a job, but it may not be considered to be “in the field”, but you still will use your degree and what you learned.

I double major in Psychology and Sociology (with an emphasis in criminology). After I get my Bachelors I plan to continue on to get my masters in clinical psychology. I’d like to go into forensics or something along those lines. Good luck with your studies!

Just wanted to share: meeting with a Cal Berkeley rep next Thursday 🙂 ahh so excited. I should be able to attend by this time next year (I am so behind- have had terrible luck with planning for transfer).

I have no idea how to do any of this.
