Sociology provides students with the ability to see their lives--and the lives of others--as part of the vast sea of cultures and connections that we call society. With this sociological imagination, students are empowered to make more informed personal decisions and to figure out how to participate in efforts to improve society for others. In a multi-ethnic and global world, sociology is fundamentally useful for anyone who wants to be an informed citizen. Sociology provides students with career opportunities including teaching sociology at the college level, working as a research scientist working in academic jobs or for government agencies, non-profit organizations or the private sector. Sociology is valuable for all careers that involve working with people, including social work, nursing, K-12 teaching, community organizing, urban planning, criminology, employment counseling, and many other fields. Most career options require more than two years of college study.
